Wine Tours Cape

We promise you a personal tour of the Cape Winelands that you won’t forget. From the hidden gems that few people know about (which we prefer), to the big names, if that is what you prefer, a tour will be tailored around your requirements. Your tour will be planned based on our standard tour, however, we will alter it according to your special needs. We will go the extra mile to let you experience that special wine you heard about, tasted or want to taste. Included in our tours are optional cellar tours (some people prefer more time tasting), all tasting fees, air-conditioned transport and a certified tour guide. A stop for a delicious lunch forms part of the tour, but is for your own account. We also conduct single cultivar wine tastings every Thursday at Grande Roche Hotel. Come and taste some of the top wines in South Africa and rate them according to your own liking. www.winetourscape.com

Nanette Ranger

Nanette Ranger (b1969, Durban, South Africa) has spent the better part of three decades building a dynamic and successful art career. Her versatility as a sculptor is self-evident in the sheer variety of sculptures that make up her body of work. Nanette believes that art ignites life. For her, art is an enriching lens which intensifies the physical and metaphysical experience of the world for both the artist and the viewer. She is inspired visually and conceptually by the world around her, blending natural textures and materials with her love for the human form. Her work seeks to explore and reflect upon the metaphysical power gained from a personal immersion in the natural world. It considers the duality of this connection and the possibility it offers for reconnecting with an intrinsic self. She recently entered into a collaboration with Creation Wine farm, where her work is on exclusive display. She is exhilarated by this new exhibition specifically because Creation Farm shares Nanette’s respect for and connection with the Earth. The exhibition is a sculptural exploration of the natural synergies and syntheses of art, food and wine. www.nanetteranger.com
