Winemaker and Managing Director, Louis Strydom checking out the Brix in the Cabernet Sauvignon yesterday. The vineyard team regularly check the baling of the grapes to measure sugar levels and ultimately decide on the optimal picking dates. Each parcel in each block is specifically measured and separated, which could require a block to be picked several times. . . . #wine #winemaking #viticulture #vineyards #vines #winewednesday #winery #stellenbosch #helderberg #ernieelswines #ernieels #bigeasywines #harvesttime #harvesting #harvest2019 #instawines #winesofinstagram #winegram #wosa #winesofsouthafrica #southafrica #stellwineroute #swr

We want to share the love today by reminding you of the intensely purple and deep crimson red Signature blend, now six years old and the perfect spoil for a loved one! Happy Valentine's Day! . . . #valentinesday #valentine #14feb #lovewins #love #lovewine #redwine #signature #ernieels #ernieelswines #bigeasy #bigeasywines #winesofsa #wosa #winegram #instawine #winesofinstagram #instagram #stellenbosch #stellwineroute #swr #southafrica #stellenbosch360
The medium bodied 2015 Merlot is a reflection of a truly great vintage, exuding excellent ripeness along with freshness and poise. A fine wine and the perfect companion for a well thought through meal. . . . #ernieelswines #ernieels #bigeasywines #bigeasy #winery #wines #lovewine #redwine #merlot #drivingcab #helderberg #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #stellenboschwineroute #stellwineroute #swr #winesofig #winesofinstagram #instagramwines #winegram #instagram #instagood #foodandwine #foodiesofsa #foodiesoftheworld #wosa #winesofsouthafrica #southafrica
If you have one of these lying around in your collection, it would be a good time to open her up. Soft in its youth, but ages with grace for up to 10 years. Now 5 years old, it would be a goodie. . . . #wine #lovewine #redwine #winewednesday #winewisdom #winetasting #drivingcab #cabsauv #cabernet #cabernetsauvignon #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #winesofstellenbosch #winesofsouthafrica #wosa #swr #stellwineroute #winemaking #winery #viticulture #vines #vineyards #instawine #winesofinstagram #winegram
Our quest to make world-class red wines doesn't stand in the way of making magnificent white wines. We have two glorious whites in our stable: Big Easy Chenin Blanc and the Ernie Els Sauvignon Blanc - both elegant, fresh and shimmering in 2017! . . . #winewednesday #wine #lovewine #whitewine #cheninblanc #sauvignonblanc #winesofstellenbosch #wosa #swr #stellwineroute #stellenbosch #helderberg #helderbergwines #eew #ernieels #ernieelswines #bigeasy #bigeasywines #winemaking #winery #southafrica
2015 was a profound year for Ernie Els Wines, but for our Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016 is even better. Rated as the best Cabernet Sauvignon in South Africa at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (@theiwsc ), you can't go wrong with this superb red. . . . #wine #redwine #drivingcab #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #ernieelswines #ernieels #winery #eew #stellenboschwines #stellwineroute #swr #instawine #iwsc #theiwsc #vintage #2015vintage #winegram #winesofig #winesofinstagram #southafrica #wosa
What are we pouring today? How about a fresh, vibrant and beautifully dry Big Easy Rosé?

The oldest Pinotage label/brand. Wynand Lategan with a bottle of the first ever release of a commercially avaiable Pinotage, the 1959 vintage Lanzerac. In subsequent years it was bottled in the "skittle" bottle on the right. #Lanzerac #Pinotage #wine #heritage #Stellenbosch #StellWineRoute #South_Africa #South Africa #South_African_Wine #thewinegirlcapetown @CliffordRobots #SAWine #Cape_Wine #AdamastorPhoto #MainingMENU #Nikon #NikonGlobal https://adamastorbacchus.blogspot.co.za/2018/03/harvest-day-at-lanzerac-stellenbosch.html www.mainingredient.biz

We are so glad the fires are all under control now, and VERY thankful for the rain. 🌧 🙏🏻 🔥 Still hoping for more rain!!! In contrast to this tranquil photo, @rustenbergwines and surrounding farms were fighting fires in their area. Please spare a thought and pray, dance or wish for rain. #stellwineroute #visitStellenbosch Photo: @vuurtoring #Repost @stellenboschwine with @get_repost

Tasting Vriesenhof wines at Auslese An invitation this week to attend a tasting of Vriesenhof wines at Auslese with the wines paired with food prepared in Chef Harald Bresselschmidt's kitchen sounded really exciting. He is rather good at this We were welcomed by Delight Aitken, helping out on her day off. She had the two vintages of Vriesenhof's unwooded Chardonnay, 2016 and 2017 on offer. Both fresh and crisp and refreshing, the 2017 still settling @Vriesenhof #Auslese @RestAubergine #StellWineRoute #SouthAfricanWine #CapeWine #WOSA #wine #WesternCape #historic #fordjohnduncan #JohnDuncanFord #AdamastorPhoto #MainingMENU #Nikon #nikonartists #NikonGlobal

The kids of Zenzele crèche flood their head teacher, Zoleka, with love. Journalist Samarie Smith captured the emotion on camera. #stellwineroute #visitstellenbosch #meetsouthafrica #instagram_sa #kids
Wild life of the Cape Winelands. At the moment we spot ladybugs everywhere - they're natural plant lice predators, so the #wine producers should be happy.
Attention to detail - even in wrapping their stone-ground flour breads at Schoon de Companje in Stellenbosch
Inspired by wine, our guest writes about poetry...
Wonderful evening of acoustic bliss with #theplastics band members Pascal and Emile at Schoon de Companje in #stellenbosch
Launch of The Demo Kitchen in Stellenbosch @the_demokitchen in Drostdy street was fabulous.
The historic heart of Stellenbosch is famous for its Cape Dutch style treasures. On such a crisp, sunny winter's day they seem almost more beautiful than usual...
Beautiful, not-so-tradional take on very traditional South African milktart, thanks to Helena's Restaurant. As yummy as the original. Thank you, our guests loved it!
Visitor poses with bronze sculpture by talented young artist Vincent da Silva. Church street in Stellenbosch is a treasure chest of art ranging from humble beaded craft items to impressive bronze pieces.
