South Africa, Stellenbosch; TOKARA has much to celebrate in September. With the coming of spring, this unique winery releases its new vintages to the public at its annual Gala event – among them the highly acclaimed TOKARA Director’s Reserve wines, Reserve collection and Limited Release wines – and at the same time launches its annual selection of “Wine Made Art” for viewing.
Forty-five students from the Marié Stander School of Art literally transform wine into art when they dip their paintbrushes in 2011 TOKARA Shiraz, to visually portray their interpretations of this year’s relevant theme: “2014 World Design Capital – Cape Town”. The World Design Capital title is awarded every second year to those cities that recognise design as a tool for social, cultural and economic development.
TOKARA, a picture-perfect destination on the crest of the Helshoogte Pass with sweeping views all the way to Table Mountain, offers visitors a unique combination of award-winning wines and olive oils, and a restaurant featuring one of South Africa’s leading chefs. Selected artworks from this year’s “Wine Made Art” project will be displayed in the on-site gallery from September 11th until end January 2015 for all public to view.
TOKARA is open 9am-5pm weekdays and 10am-3pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
