Winner announced! Congrats to Jaclyn Becker who won this fabulous prize.

Named after the South African golf legend, this beautiful wine farm in the Helderberg Golden Triangle region of Stellenbosch is worth visiting for its grandstand views alone. Add a state-of-the-art wine cellar, vinotheque and tasting room, a stylish restaurant and terrace and, naturally, the Ernie Els trophy room, and it’s a place to while away an afternoon in luxurious comfort with a Big Easy welcoming vibe. There’s even a chipping green for those keen to practise their swing.

Ernie Else Wines Entrance

Naturally superb cuisine and top-notch wine are par for the course… it’s no wonder locals and tourists alike flock to this renowned estate for a heavenly day in the Winelands.

If this sounds like your kind of outing, read on. By simply entering our competition below, you and your lucky plus one stand the chance of winning an outing to Ernie Els Wines, complete with a three-course lunch, wine-tasting  and a guided tour of the wine cellar, simply by entering our competition below.

Ernie Else Wines Eric Bulpitt

Eric Bulpitt, the new Head Chef at the Ernie Els kitchen, formerly at renowned establishments including The Werf at Boschendal, Pierneef Á La Motte, Faber Restaurant at Avondale, and The Restaurant at Newton Johnson (to name a few), is turning heads in the Helderberg this summer. With a deep-seated appreciation for cooking with fresh farm produce, Eric enjoys crafting memorable dining experiences with a unique blend of locally sourced ingredients and global culinary trends rooted in heritage cuisine. Expect the likes of perfectly grilled sirloin steaks; peppered Yellowtail pâté; slow-cooked pork belly; West Coast linefish; and dry-aged Confit duck. Eric’s signature burnt Basque cheesecake served with fire-poached peaches finishes things off perfectly.

Ernie Else Wines Steak

The wines are also worth writing home about. Crafted by winemaker Louis Strydom, who has steered the winery from the maiden vintage in 2000 to today, the estate’s premium wines range from a crisp and fruity Chenin Blanc to a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and an iconic Bordeaux-style blend. You’ll learn more about his winemaking philosophy on a guided tour through the brick-vaulted cellar (lined with French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels, terracotta amphorae and Nico Velo Concrete Tanks) and taste the results in the wine-tasting that follows.
