Epitomising the beloved character and celebrated prestige of their namesake, Ernie Els Wines has four collections – Signature, Major Series, Big Easy and Proprietor’s – delivering iconic wines of characteristic style, exclusivity and generosity. Whether applauding exceptional accomplishment, upping the entertainment game or toasting great friendship, Ernie Els Wines always make it an occasion par excellence.

The winery was officially opened in 2005, and since then, the focus has been on producing a range of wines, with a particular focus on Cabernet Sauvignon. Recent renovations have transformed the winery into an iconic symbol of the Helderberg region.


Savour modern farmhouse cuisine at its finest in a charming open-plan space that extends out onto a terrace with picturesque views of Stellenbosch and the Helderberg mountains. Farmstyle decor echoes the hearty cuisine made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Seasonal Grillworks offer a unique dining experience.
