Ernie Els Wines

Being one of South Africa's leading ambassadors and one of the most well known person in the world of sport, Ernie Els decided to make Stellenbosch the home of his wines. In 1999 the concept of Ernie Els Wines was born. Together with the award-winning winemaker Louis Strydom, member of the Cape Winemakers Guild, they produced the maiden, 2000 vintage of Ernie Els - which was a 'classic' Bordeaux blend.

They wanted to deliver a quality product, ensuring that packaging, presentation and marketing were in-line with the premium product that  they wanted to create. 

Starting with a small range of only red wines, Ernie Els Wines has now a broader range including the famours Big Easy Wines, the Proprietor's Wines and the well know Signature.
