Neil Ellis

In 1984 Neil Ellis sourced grapes from vineyards not of his own and produced wine in rented cellar space. These grapes were sourced in the Stellenbosch district and meant a lot of nosing around the restrictive quota system prevalent at the time.

His vision, the pursuit of quality, extended out of the cellar and into the vineyards where varieties would excel and best express a particular style of wine reflective of their environment.

Today, the experience and knowledge of the past are applied to modern techniques and technologies for a new generation of winemaking.

We are but custodians of this planet and responsible and sustainable practices form part of our core values. We aim to respect the soil, cut water use, recycle, and reduce energy use and greenhouse emissions in our daily practices. We believe in the upliftment of our local community through charitable organizations, training and job empowerment.

We are a certified sustainable winery and carefully consider the impact that every viticultural and winemaking decision will have on our fragile ecosystems.

IPW & WIETA certified.
