Besides the very popular, nationally distributed South Hill range of wines; the Kevin King wine range is made in limited quantities and primarily sold directly from the farm. The wines tend to be made from special pockets of vineyards, varietals or blends either from the farm or Elgin region that Kevin and our winemaker Sean Skibbe have pre identified as having something unique.
Kevin started the tradition of naming each of the wines after a family member and when the opportunity came to label a locally produced Chardonnay and being the elder brother to much loved sisters Karen, Karol and Karleen, “Three Sisters” was an easy decision.
Being long standing friends to Hermanus based sisters Erna Dry, Christa Clark and Louise Hennigs – the opportunity to introduce the wine and host an art exhibition of these talented sisters was just as easy.
.Erna Dry’s love is for ceramics. For many years she ran Hornbill House Gallery producing ceramic & bronze sculptures for the tourist market. Reinventing herself during the pandemic, Erna has moved away from figures, faces & panels and been experimenting with new shapes and techniques.
Most of Christa Clark’s work is centred on portraits and faces. Her paintings are varied, ranging from detailed studies to free & spontaneous intuitive work. Using both acrylics & oils she relishes the journey of discovery in every new face and experiences a sense of connectedness to people and animals through her portraits.
Louise Hennigs works in a variety of styles and mediums from realism to abstraction, decorative to illustrative. Reflected in her oil, acrylic and pastel work is her passion for the African landscape and everything in it: the diversity of the flora and fauna, the vast open spaces and the textures & vivid colours of nature.
The Three Sisters exhibition runs until the end of October 2021 – we’re open every day from 8am til 5pm and you can enjoy a wine tasting and then relax with your favourite South Hill wine. Our restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch Fridays to Mondays.
