The building that is now used as the tasting room dates back to 1830 and was meticulously restored by the Erasmus Family in 2009.

The original hand made clay bricks and the huge poplar beams holding the roof are still visible.

The gable is set at a rakish angle, apparently to enable mules to pull the straps that were used to pull in  chaff in the so called “Kafhok”. It looks like it’s about to topple over, but it’s been like that for 180 years!

Danie and Petro Erasmus are the 6th generation Erasmus on the farm and the founders of Sumsaré Family Wines. Sumsaré Family wines is currently owned and operated by their son Johannes Erasmus.

The tasting room is beautifully restored and rich in family history as this building dates back to 1830!
Here you can sit back and enjoy the splendour of Sumsaré Family Wines in a relaxed and charming setting overlooking the family vineyards.
