What a wonderful afternoon spent at Sumaridge (the highlight of our time spent in Hermanus for our wedding anniversary). So enjoyed the wine, divine cheese platter and the excellent service provided by Victor. What a beautiful setting and lovely experience! Thanks to all!

Stayed at the lodge for a week with my family, simply fantastic,amazing views, luxurious accommodation, the wine was superb and Bianca was a star cooking some gourmet meals..

We sat on the balcony overlooking the lake and ordered a platter to go with the wines. Everything was just delicious and the lady who conducted our tasting was informative.... More
