The global golf icon entered the wine business in 2003 through a partnership with longtime friend and founder of Luna Vineyards, Mike Moone.

Ernie Els (2005)

The genesis of the Big Easy’s entrance into the wine industry was a long-standing relationship between Els and winemaker Jean Engelbrecht. Engelbrecht-Els vineyards was formed in 1999, and a year later the first vintage, a signature Bordeaux blend, became the highest rated (93) South African in history according to Wine Spectator. Ernie Els is the flagship wine produced by the partnership, and this 2005 vintage is very long and poised – just like Mr. Els. Plum red in color, this vintage offers great middle palate complexity and a lingering spicy finish.
