Ernie Els Wines Restaurant
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.
Enjoy exceptional wines and enduring hospitality!
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.

The new season has inspired our chef to bring back one of our most popular dishes.
Join us in the Tasting Room every Monday and Tuesday for our Big Easy Burger – an exceptional culinary creation that is the perfect balance of quality and flavour.
Enjoy a 300g beef patty, served on a classic brioche bun with a side of crispy thick potato chips for R155. Our Big Easy Burger comes with a complementary glass of wine from our Big Easy Range. Choose from our crisp, dry Chenin Blanc; refreshing Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé; Mediterranean-style Red Blend; or an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our Big Easy Wines pay tribute to our namesake, Ernie Els , who is known on the course as “The Big Easy” as much for his effortless demeanour as for his big heart and philanthropic efforts.
Elevate your burger by adding creamy Camembert Cheese for an additional R30.
Bookings are not required for our Tasting Room. Lunch is served from 12h00 to 15h00.
