As a leading South African ambassador and one of the most recognizable faces in the world of sport, Ernie Els has long demonstrated a passion for excellence. His focus, discipline and commitment have led to extraordinary golf success, and these same qualities are evident in Ernie Els Wines. Through his many travels around the globe Ernie has been exposed to and appreciated some of the world’s greatest wines and in 1999 decided to pursue this passion for fine wine with the creation of Ernie Els Wines. Ernie befittingly chose Stellenbosch, the noble heart of South African wine to base his operation. We invite you to share his vision, and with that, Welcome to Ernie Els Wines!
Ernie Els - Proprietor
Ernie has been one of South Africa's leading sportsmen for over a decade and has become an ambassador for our country. A scholar of life, he has taken to learning about wine like a fish to water. Ernie is quoted as saying that "wine is like golf - in both endeavours nature has the last ruling".
Louis Strydom - Winemaker & Managing Director
Louis has walked the long road with Ernie since the brands inception during 1999 and has been father to each and every wine produced. A decade has passed and he has continued to distinguish himself as an exceptionally gifted winemaker, and now also heads up our operation as Managing Director.
His understanding of the terroir, and performance levels of these vineyards have been a key ingredient to the success of his wines.
