As a local, a friend and I just popped in for a look, but the welcome we got was warm and we were offered to try two different wines, even though we had chosen not to do the wine tasting. The ambiance is stunning and although a very limited lunch menu, we stayed on for lunch and soaked up the... More

Top class winery, superb views over the Stellenbosch area. Trophy room was impressive. Enjoyed the wines and could have sat there all day. @beck_stuart

The wine farm has a beautiful wines and a beautiful view...but that is about it. The rude staff makes it unfortunately very unpleasant and they create a cold atmosphere. Paying R60 for a tasting, which is above average, one would expect at least good customer service. Would not recommend, there are plenty other good wine farms in the nearby region... More

Spent most of my time in Ernie's trophy room. When one of the staff entered the room and opened the cabinet that held the the Open Championship Claret Jug and presented it to me I was in 7th heaven. Held it aloft for 5 minutes while my wife took many photographs-so cool. Also give a complimentary glass if wine. Could... More

This was our third winery in the Cape region and has now become my most favorite wine. The Ernie Els Big Easy White is one of the best Chenin Blanc's I have had. We had an American host which was really great because we got a little taste of home in a far away place. He went out of his... More

Tranquil setting on the hillsides above Stellenbosch. Perfectly lanscaped up against some o the most beautiful mountains in South Africa. Great food! Some of the best we had. Was part of our tour of the cape set up by Kanyezi African Safaris. Be sure to ask to see the board room where many of Ernie's PGA trophies are, you can... More

With two golfers - one local to the area - I guess this was a 'must visit'. We arrived to be told the kitchen was closing soon so we needed to hurry to get our food order. The food was ok, but the cheese platter that arrived for one of our party had two pieces of cheese - not what... More

Terrible service on Saturday 3 May. So-called waiters were inexperienced students, chatting with their mates and absolutely not bothered, the manageress even younger and totally clueless, and the guy at the desk where we had to swipe our credit card was smug and arrogant. Small menu, bad service, a total disappointment.

My husband had wanted to visit this establishment for quite some time as he is an avid Ernie Els supporter. We booked a table for lunch. Two of our party ordered the burger but unfortunately they had run out of these so they had to choose something else. The meal itself and accompanying wine were all very tasty but when... More
