Wine is taken very seriously at Ellerman House, and the hotel’s 7500-strong collection of South African wines represents both established and emerging labels from the Western Cape’s world-renowned wine regions. Many of the wines in the collection are rare wines or special releases augmented by sought-after vintages bought on auction. Wines from the cellar are only made available on the hotel’s wine list once they have been optimally aged and are deemed ready for enjoyment at peak maturity.

Many of these fine wines are also available by the glass without compromising on quality, thanks to the Le Verre de Vin preservation system. The depth of the wine list allows guests to try verticals of vintages whereby the same wine can be sampled over various vintages.

A complimentary wine tasting will be available daily for our guests. Please make sure you speak to our managers if you would like to book this.

The Ellerman House Wine Gallery

Integrating outstanding contemporary architecture with breathtaking sculptural elements and cutting-edge design, the new Ellerman House Wine Gallery is not only a showcase for this extensive, award-winning wine collection but offers guests a unique, interactive journey into the world of wine.

It aims to bring to life South Africa’s 350-year old heritage of winemaking, providing an environment for tasting and learning about local wines as intriguing and inspiring as the wine itself. Sophisticated storage is provided in state-of-the-art wine racks and separate, temperature-controlled maturation cellars for white and red wines. The gallery incorporates an interactive multi-media wine library and brandy tasting lounge. There is also a Champagne cellar, stocked exclusively with rare and special vintages of Dom Pérignon. Guests have access to a wine App for iPad that provides detailed information about the wine estates and tasting notes for each of the wines featured on the hotel’s wine list.

“The wine gallery is much more than a functional space – it is a work of art” – Paul Harris, owner of Ellerman House
