When arriving at Ernie Els you’ll first encounter huge granite boulders, ponds beside the path all filled with Koi fish. You can continue along until you reach The Library, a room under the wine cellar which houses the premium wine collection of the estate. Once you reach the tasting area, a sweeping view the Helderberg Mountains come into view. There’s a trophy room which will make you feel like you’ve popped into Ernie Els’ own home with family portraits and trophies all about.

Winemaker, Louis Strydom and assistant winemaker, Theo Truyts are in charge of producing the fine red wines. Louis has been at the estate since it first began and before that he worked at a wine estate in Southern France.

The estate holds chipping contest each month where winners can win a magnum of their signature blend, The Ernie Els Signature. There are six red wines, one being the Big Easy which is their entry level red. It’s made up of Shiraz, Cabernet sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Viognier. The first wine produced on the estate is the flagship which is more of a luxury item than the more affordable Big Easy and Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon. Dine on their superb meats of lamb shank and beef sirloin which complements their reds to the tee.
