Generous Hearty Farm Style Cuisine

Thoughtfully selected for its prime position, Ernie Els winery is framed by panoramic views of Cape Town and Table Mountain to the west, and Stellenbosch and the Helderberg mountains to the east. A passage beyond our grand granite boulders, and through our wooden farmhouse-style doors will lead you into our homely, expansive tasting room and restaurant where you will be rewarded with exceptional wines and hearty farm-style cuisine.

Experience our Grillworks in action on our Restaurant Terrace on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Please be advised that our Grillworks Weekends are weather dependent and seasonal.

Make yourself at home in our warm and welcoming Tasting Room – the perfect setting to relax and enjoy an educated wine tasting presentation. The expansive area extends out onto the wide terrace, with majestic Stellenbosch and Helderberg Mountain views.

Who's Cooking?

Executive Chef – Saskia Nel Photo

Executive Chef – Saskia Nel

Starting her career by working in large hotels in the Northern Drakensberg, Johannesburg and Kwa-Zulu Natal, Saskia moved on to work in restaurants and her journey took her to Franschhoek where she joined the Leeu Collection. In 2019, Saskia was welcomed to the Ernie Els Wines team as the Executive Chef.

Saskia has a deep fondness for the very essence of cooking and believes that “fresh, homemade food is always best”. She enjoys getting back to the basics and building dishes from scratch, like making her own pasta and ice cream, in particular. Saskia always adds “a little extra love” to all her dishes by making use of fresh, locally-sourced seasonal ingredients and presenting them in a generous farm-to-table style.
