Professional golfer Ernie Els, who hails from Johannesburg, opened the Ernie Els Winery in Stellenbosch in 1999. The wines produced here vary by year, but tend to be predominantly reds. You'll taste cabernet sauvignon, syrah, and merlot, as well as a popular red blend. The winery also makes a sauvignon Blanc, a syrah rose, and a chenin blanc.
The estate's tasting room is fun for golf fans and wine lovers alike, as it's decorated with some of Els' golfing trophies. The on-site restaurant serves lunches from Tuesday-Saturday, and each month there is a chipping competition on the estate grounds.
The tasting room at Ernie Els Wines is open Monday-Saturday from 9am-5pm, and tastings range from SAR40-60 per person, depending on the wines you choose to sample.
