VINEYARDS

Gregory Brink Louw has worked tirelessly to over the last 18 years to create Silvermist Organic Wine Farm. His ethos of life has slipped into his wine to create what is now the only organic wine farm in Constantia. Greg believes that everything is a product of its environment. This is why when you walk around the Estate, you will see the it’s not just the vines that are grown naturally and in tune with the Earth. The invasive tree’s have been chopped down by hand and reused in the buildings, wooden decking and featured Art in the Hotel. The compost is made from organic waste and the vines are growing without the need for irrigation or reliance upon pesticides, herbicides and chemicals. What is produced is the product of love, passion and an unmoving care for both the natural environment and its people.

ART BY SIMON BANNISTER

Simon Max Bannister’s sculpture is speared by the ecological crisis, with a knowledge that species and habitats are threatened by man’s insatiable fire. It is mostly in his work process where the poetry reveals itself. From splinters of invasive timber, he constructs indigenous birds, nests and wings. These wooden creations become the kindling for a unique lost cast technique, where the incineration of shape becomes the mould for the final sculpture. These negative spaces are cast with bronze, thereby immortalising the species that have become so significant to him.
