Art, food and wine – the relationship reinterpreted
Passionate about the finer things in life, Franschhoek-based La Motte Wine Estate is presenting a creative and innovative interpretation involving food, wine and art to its participation in the annual Franschhoek Art in Clay festival.
Part of the recently established Franschhoek Art Route, La Motte’s 2016 exhibition of Art in Clay is entitled, A Sense of …, incorporating the three passions of art, wine and food, and is displayed in the maturation cellar as part of the Valley’s Art Festival between 21 October and 12 December. As an addition to the exhibition however, the gastronomic creativity of Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant’s Chef Michelle Theron and cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche, as well as the culinary inspiration of the commissioned ceramicists resulted in the design of a new execution to the estate’s award-winning Food and Wine Tasting.
Guests to the estate have come to know the array of beautiful little tasters complementing the La Motte Classic Collection of wines, and now, delicately plated in and on custom-made ceramic ware by celebrated ceramicists such as Sarah Walters, John Bauer and Hennie Meyer, the presentation of the Food and Wine Tasting not only beautifully complement the elegant environment, but also introduces a very successful cooperation between the arts of food, wine and ceramics!
This special edition of the La Motte Food and Wine Tasting will be presented on Friday mornings at 10:00, for the duration of the exhibition. The tasting is presented in Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant, costs R130 per person and is available for up to 15 people per session. Reservations are essential and have to be made 48 hours in advance: Book online, T +27(0)21 876 8820 or E email@example.com
