Neil Ellis

Neil Ellis is one of South Africa’s pioneering wine producers from Stellenbosch with a vision to make distinctive, refined wines that are expressive of their terroir and that rank amongst the very best in South Africa.

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 practices by a dedicated team of growers which extends through to the winemaking practices.

After four decades of making wine, Neil is now joined in his endeavour by his children. Eldest son Warren has assumed joint responsibility as winemaker and viticulturist while Charl heads up the commercial operations and Margot the marketing.
