Sumaridge Wines – the deeper meaning of beauty.
Sumaridge Wines from the Sumaridge Estate in the Hemel and Aarde Valley are worthy of a trip and the estate is on of those gems that you do not want to zoom past without turning in, tasting and marveling at the beautiful setting. It immediately induces deep breathing and even deeper relaxation. I Love this place! The vibe is elegant yet relaxed and the wine is very serious about passionately impressing your taste-buds!

Situated -34° 22′ 1.416″ , 19° 15′ 19.116″ Sumaridge Wine Estate is located in the South African Wine of Origin ward of the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, which is located approximately 135 kilometers South East from Cape Town on the Cape South Coast. The Hemel en Aarde valley – where you will find Sumaridge Estate Wines Hemel & Aarde Valley – is often referred to as “Little Burgundy” because of the valley’s reputation for producing world class Cool Climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The cellar was designed bearing this is mind and pays homage to the great wine houses in the Côte de Beaune. We are delighted to welcome guests, young and old, to our tasting room and dining room, with its wonderful views across the Debos dam, through Onrus to beyond Betty’s Bay, as the crow flies some 28 kilometres away and on a clear day beyond to Cape Point, some 75 kilometres away.
Fabulousness: Events at Sumaridge – solo exhibition of Aviva Maree
Sumaridge is delighted to be able to host a solo exhibition of Aviva Maree’s wonderful art.
The exhibition entitled “Art de Vivre” will feature in our tasting room, from Saturday 3rd March until the end of May. If you would like to come to the private viewing on Saturday 3rd March from 6.00pm – 8.30pm we would be delighted. Please RSVP to email@example.com Aviva paints figurative oils from observing scenes of everyday life. The female figure takes centre stage. Aviva admires the inner strength with which women work with pride and contentment to survive and provide for their children. This subject matter gives Aviva’s work a universal and timeless quality. Eye-catching and inspiring, Aviva’s paintings capture South African women purely and with empathy. Harmonious compositions, bold brush work and refreshing use of colour, make the paintings come alive. Baskets, fishing nets and shoulder bags are some of the symbols Aviva uses for labour, hope and stages of life, like moving on or coming home. The paintings themselves seem to tell a story, inspiring the viewer to keep coming back to look again. Memories are recalled, experiences relived and emotions shared. Aviva’s paintings have something very real about them. It touches hearts.
Aviva Maree is a self-taught South African artist, having lived in Pretoria and rural parts of Limpopo Province. Since 2000 she is based in Knysna. She is represented by selected art galleries in South Africa and has had ten successful solo exhibitions over the past decade. The exhibition embraces the close connection between women and the fruits of nature, emphasising human dependency on Mother Earth. Whether cutting flowers, collecting shells or picking fruit, the women in Aviva’s paintings are living each day to the full, as if spring has just sprung. Aviva’s Hebrew name means springtime. These women inspire the viewer to appreciate a life firmly rooted in the earth and lived in simplicity.
