Had the most wonderful meal here last year. Thoroughly enjoyed the decor, service, food and of course the wine. Definitely worth visiting if you're in Stellenbosch and want a fantastic slap-up meal with amazing wine accompaniments.

We came out of curiosity as my husband is a fan of Ernie's, but I'm so glad we did. After seeing the established wineries with their magnificent old buildings it was interesting to compare a modern establishment. It's beautifully done: you walk through great boulders and lily pools, across a little bridge then into an enormous arched tunnel which opens into the elegant tasting and restaurant area. Beyond is the terrace with a tee-spot and ball at the ready, a lily-pool cascade and steps down to a green, complete with flag, then a magnificent view across the vines. We sat here drinking in the view and tasting some decent wines (a very knowledgeable young lady serving us) and agreed that Ernie certainly knows how to celebrate the good life.

We have visited many of the Cape wine estates over many years but had not visited Ernie Els.We should not have waited as the whole experience was outstanding.The view was superb and we were welcomed by the Staff who arranged a table where we shared a beautiful meat and cheese platter. Unfortunately I neglected to take a photograph of it as we couldn't wait to get tucked in. We didn't do a wine testing but our platter included a glass of Ernie Els Sauvignon Blanc which was delicious
Ernie's trophy room was well laid out and very interesting
Well worth the visit and recommended

I have visited many wine farms but to me the view from this place is breathtaking. The wine is good but s little pricey. The signature wine is £600. Make the effort and go as the wine tasting is only £40

Okay Ernie Els is one of my favorite golfers and his winery matches his play and is outstanding! We could have spent all day there as two hours in the afternoon was heavenly! I would visit here anytime- great wines and tasting!
