Ernie Els Wines started in 1999 in the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation. This was also the same time when Ernie Els was becoming one of the elite golfers in the world having already, by then, won multiple championships in both the PGA and European tours, including two US Opens. The winery owns 72 hectares of vineyards, growing most of the popular French varietals from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec to Syrah. Conspicuously missing from the Ernie Els vineyards is the Pinotage, South Africa’s indigenous varietal produced by crossing Pinot Noir with Cinsault.
Wines From India Edna Diaz invited me to a full range tasting of Ernie Els wines I just could not miss it. The entire Ernie Els wine portfolio – all eight wines, are imported for local distribution by BBB.
Wine Club India Ernie Els Signature 2008, Stellenbosch – ‘this was the same wine of another vintage, the 2009, that captured my thirst for this brand at the Grand Wine Experience; this five varietal Bordeaux blend has a sumptuous nose, well integrated oak and ripe fruit elements, vanilla, licorice, rich and yet not overpowering on the palate, suavely lingering up to the last drop in the glass’; P3,500/bottle Judging from the tasting, the wines are all very good, and there is no doubt that the brand appeal of a sports icon in Ernie Els, plus the high quality of the wines, make for a successful formula. But this may have a bigger implication to the local wine scene. South African wines are just 1.4 percent of total wine imports to the country (based on 2011 NSO figures, no 2012 complete numbers yet), and is ranked 9th among wine exporting countries to the Philippines. A popular name like Ernie Els, who is synonymous to South African excellence can be the shot in the arm needed by this wine country to get itself established not only in the Philippines but in Asia in general.

Lavaux vineyards, Switzerland, a Unesco World Heritage site (photo ©2013 HappyAlex – Fotolia.com) GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Torches light the lovely 15th-century cobblestone courtyard, once a two- or three-hour carriage ride from Geneva. A hum of voices carries from an open cellar door where soft candlelight offers a glimpse of amphoras and barrels. Upstairs, in a renovated area of the old Grand’Cour château, Jean-Pierre Pellegrin describes what makes his latest trademark “P” wine, a single-grape Pinot Noir, so special.
Vineyards In India Listening attentively: sommeliers from world-class restaurants, friends from the nearby village of Peissy/Satigny and clients from the city, which is now just a short drive away.
Wineries In India “P” will soon be sold out. Given that Pellegrin makes it only when all the conditions for this old-vines wine are right—on average every other year—we treasure the glasses in our hands at his annual openhouse evening.
