There's Beauty in every inch on Aan de Doorns farm.
The town takes its name from the farm "De Doorns boven aan de Hex Rivier" ('the thorns on the upper Hex River'), known as early as 1725. The area was declared a sub-drosty of Tulbagh in 1819 and the farm became the seat of the area's own drosty in 1822.
Naude, Hugo (1869 – 1941)
Pieter Hugo Naude was born on the farm, ‘Aan de Doorns’in the Worcester district in the Western
Cape. After being schooled at Over Hex and Worcester, he returned to the family farm, his talent was
recognized and encouraged, most notably by Olive Schreiner. In 1889 he went to London where he
studied at the Slade School. After the studies he worked for a short while in Italy. Between 1890 – 1894
he attended ‘Kunst Akadamie, Munich’. #hugonaude#aandedoorns#history#artist#oilpainting
The mountains, the sunshine, the food, the people, and... can you guess? The Sauvignon Blanc! (Surpriiiise. 😉) ...was all splendid.
@riolargooliveestate put on a wonderful and enlightening #TreeToTable experience today. Thank you, Aan de Doorns, for bringing the wine! ☺️ On the Sauvignon Blanc: 2016. Fruity and fresh. Thoroughly enjoyable. Try it and let us know your thoughts.
