Ernie Els Winery Victorious in the 2024 Best Of Wine Tourism Awards Architecture and Landscaping Category

11 October 2023

We are very excited to share the news that we were victorious in the 2024 Best Of Wine Tourism Awards in the category architecture and landscaping. This international competition celebrates innovation and excellence in wine tourism throughout the world's greatest wine regions, including South Africa.

Our commitment to excellence goes beyond the creation of exceptional wines. In collaboration with Stellenbosch-based interior design studio, Rumour Has It, we approached our building's recent renovations with the same attention to detail and profound appreciation for subtleties, that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Together, we created a breath-taking masterpiece that authentically captures the essence of the Helderberg – a sanctuary teeming with vibrant flora, diverse fauna, proud winemaking heritage, and, of course, excellent Cabernet Sauvignon!

We are thrilled to have been recognised in this category and would like to extend our congratulations to our team, as well as the many hands that helped envision and establish our winery as we know it today.

"The essence of all art and design is to create things with luminous spirituality in them that actually take your breath away. Ernie Els Winery is a masterpiece and a landmark on the Helderberg Mountain – for me, it's a slice of Paradise. On behalf of Ernie Els and our dedicated team, we would like to thank you for awarding us as number one!" – Hans von Staff-Reitzenstein, Proprietor.
