Next to this, the central bar of the Wine Lounge is fashioned to resemble the egg-shaped fermentation wine barrels in the adjoining cellar. Ceiling motifs carry the theme, offering a visual link to the movement of vine leaves in the summer winds. In the evening, the Wine Lounge becomes home to Gåte, an exciting new restaurant for the South African wine region.
The outside waterfalls and a pond by Clive Giliomee (water feature designer and engineer at Water In Motion) symbolise the streams and river which feed the vineyards. The design was inspired to effectively reflect the circle of life in the wine lands.
Reimagination of a Warehouse
The large former warehouse of the estate has been renovated into the Venue Hall, an airy light-filled events space capable of welcoming up to 200 guests. To achieve this, brick walls were replaced with a soaring aluminium system by Reynaers Aluminium, which allows the picturesque natural surroundings to be drawn indoors.
