About Sumsare Family Wines

Sumsare Family Wines is a family owned and run boutique winery in the picturesque, lush Agterkliphoogte region of The Robertson Wine Valley. The Agterkliphoogte is an area in stark contrast to the arid Karoo plains that lie before it with beautifully well-nourished vineyards that take their root in the rich lime soils that the area is blessed with.

The surrounding mountain ranges elevate the scenery of this wine farm to nothing short of spectacular and it is little wonder the Erasmus Family chose Wandsbeck to relocate to in the year 1810. You may have noticed that Sumsare is in fact the family name, Erasmus spelt backwards.The cellar handcrafts an exclusive selection of wines – Shiraz, Chardonnay with Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc – with the greatest care and attention to detail. A family that cares about its legacy and environment, Sumsare have committed to donating R2 per bottle sold to the Wilderness Foundation Rhino Protection Initiative.

The family is warm and welcoming to anyone that would like to spend the day tasting and browsing and the love with which they make their wine definitely shows. Contact them for a private tasting in the beautifully restored building that dates back to 1830.
