Overview
More
Mindful that no single vineyard can satisfy the needs of all grape varieties, Neil Ellis set out to identify distinct terroir in which individual varieties will excel. He placed the emphasis not only on the environment but also on caring viticultural practises by a dedicated team of growers which extends through to the winemaking practises. Today the journey of Neil Ellis Wines is not only of Neil Ellis anymore. After four decades of making wine, the next stage of the journey has begun with Neil's son, Warren, sharing responsibilities as winemaker and viticulturist in the pursuit of quality winemaking.

We actually visited in the fall of 2016, but that doesn't show as an option. We bought a 2014 pinotage which we just opened this evening, back in the US. Wish we had 12 cases of it! It was absolutely fantastic. My memory of our...More

What a nice venue. Sitting on the patio and sampling their wines, especially the white, along with their cheese platter is the experience you want while in the area. Located on the way to the Franschhoek Valley, this is a great choice for wine tasting...More

I had never heard of Neil Ellis before ! Wines are great especially the whites ! Order a cheese platter for two while tasting enough for four and move on to the next wine-farm so you can nibble further

Best thing about this wine tasting was the indoor space in the modern tasting room and it's great outlook. Wine was pretty good too but the service not as good as other wineries I've visited. Just felt a bit rushed and less memorable than experiences...More
