Neil Ellis in the Jonkershoek Valley
The winery was founded in 1989 by Neil Ellis and Hans Pieter Schroeder. The Neil Ellis Winery is situated in the picturesque Jonkershoek Valley - in the South African wine growing region of Stellenbosch.
Neil Ellis was not an unknown winemaker before founding his own winery. He previously worked for the KWV cooperative as an assistant and then as a cellar master at the Groot Constantia Winery. Neil Ellis strives for excellent quality from the very beginning - from the cellar to the vineyards. The most important grape varieties for the Neil Ellis Winery are
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Sauvignon Blanc
Stellenbosch - perfect conditions, not only for Sauvignon Blanc
Using the most modern technology and the experience and knowledge of the past, Neil Ellis vinifies high-quality, terroir-specific and distinctive wines - above all the Sauvignon Blanc from Groenekloof.
"Our vision remains to make distinctive, refined wines that are expressive of their terrain and rank amongst South Africa's finest. A pursuit of quality, nothing less. (Neil Ellis)
