Lunch and wine on a chilly rainy day at Ernie Els Wines, Stellenbosch: Nov 2017

Stepping back in time.  November last year.  Hubby and I, and my wine-tasting-buddy-and-extra-special-niece Daniella enjoyed a spot of wine tasting and lunch in the cosy and warm wine tasting room and restaurant of Ernie Els Wines in Stellenbosch.  Rain was a welcome relief for drought stricken Cape but didn’t last long sadly.

Emerald green lawns greet visitors at the car park ..

Pretty entrance …

Granite boulders reminded hubby and I of Matopos and the landscape around Msvingo, as well as my cousins home in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.  Reminded us of home …

Complementary glass of wine of your choice on entering.  Nice touch 🙂   I loved the heavy wooden table ..

Sipping a Syrah while choosing our wines for tasting ..

A quick browse while we wait for our sommelier …

(see previous blog post)   weather permitting you can try your hand at swinging a golf club to pop a ball onto the tee on the lawn below  ..

The restaurant is fairly small but we didn’t mind waiting by the cosy fire for a table …

Both Daniella and I had the Chicken Poke bowl whilst hubby had a Decadent Beef burger and naturally a glass of Ernie Els Syrah ..

Really really nice Ernie Els branded clothing available ..

 

 

So there you have it … Ernie Els wine farm in the heat of summer (previous post) and a chilly rainy cosy-by-the-fire wine tasting and lunch experience 🙂
