I spent a Saturday afternoon as part of my wine estate visits around Stellenbosch. I have sampled some of the wines from this estate via JNWines and this gave me the opportunity to taste others than I am not familiar with. Accompanied with cheese and cold meats - a great way to sample wine. The estate has a wonderful view... More

We went for a tasting at Ernie Els' vineyards for the first time. The tasting room is really grand and impeccably maintained. Really comfortable seating is provided both inside and outside. We were served by Lize , who was very friendly and knowledgeable. They have two different tastings each of 4 wines and we did one of each ; the... More

Hole in one chipping for a bottle is a very creative touch! The wines are good, food menu limited but mastered. Definitely worth a visit

We had previously visited the vineyard 5 years previously and were blown away. So it was on our list of must do's this visit to South Africa. The entrance and decor seemed a little worn. We decided to stay and have a wine tasting and lunch. Lunch is very limited in choice and a bit disappointing. The wines are excellent... More

We booked a private wine tour and intended to visit this winery amongst a couple of others today. When we drove through the vineyard, we saw a huge amount of cars parked along the street leading to the entrance, so we thought that the place must be well visited. When walking through the hallway to the reception, we were suddenly... More
