From Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in Southern Africa, Ernst Gouws brings you some of the best wines our beautiful country produces.
Wines with subtle mineral notes are harvested from vineyards planted in decomposed granite soils. Breath-taking ocean views and cool afternoon breeze make Stellenbosch well-known for producing fruit-filled, easy-drinking white and rosé wines with bright acidity and citrusy flavours of lemon, apple, and peaches. Our bold, peppery, savoury and mineral red wines come from vineyards planted perfectly on the mountain slopes. Our proudly South African grape varietal Pinotage, was developed in the Cape Winelands almost a century ago, is well adapted and most suitable to grow in the deep soils on the hills surrounding the valley.
Ernst Gouws & Co’s modern style wines are known for their rich varietal character and an intense concentration of fruit.
The circular labels symbolise our infinite passion for wine, family and tradition, & the ties that bind them together.
Since Ernst subscribes to the French philosophy that the quality of the grape is inextricably linked to the terroir, he handpicks his grapes where they naturally grow at their very best. We have immense respect for our partners who produce these grapes and cherish the relationships we've built over the years. Their passion for producing quality grapes enables us to achieve our goal of creating and marketing our wines under the Ernst Gouws & Co label - wines which bear the signature of Ernst Gouws' seal of approval.
