Ernie Els Wines is a fantastic estate founded by none other than South Africa’s professional golfer, Ernie Els. When the Stellenbosch wine route began in the early 1970s it was dominated by the three historic estates of Delheim, Simonsig and Spier. Today, however, a multitude of estates in the region offer wine tasting and cellar tours for a reasonable fee.
Explore the wonderful and fascinating world of wine as seen and enjoyed by South African golfer Ernie Els. Through his many travels around the globe Ernie has been exposed to and appreciated some of the world’s greatest wines and in 1999 decided to pursue his developed passion for fine wine with the creation of his own estate. Ernie befittingly chose Stellenbosch, the noble heart of South African wine to base his operation. Welcome to Ernie Els Wines!
