The English language barely suffices to convey the pleasure that is a visit to Donum Estate. The drive up alone, at the end of which one is met with one of Jaume Plensa’s gargantuan and peaceful heads, is enough to gracefully thrill, but this is merely the beginning.
On a hill amongst vineyards, Richard Hudson’s massive heart, Love Me, made entirely of polished mirror steel, reflects the splendor of the landscape and your own awestruck visage. It’s a magnetic moment, and if you’ve had a taste of the Pearl pinot noir, it’s all the more transporting.View the art, sip the wine and marvel that, along with all the absolute dross and nonsense humans create, we also create these masterpieces. —JV
