Ellerman House sits perched on the slopes of Lion’s Head in the prestigious Bantry Bay residential area in Cape Town. The elegant Cape Edwardian mansion was once the home of the shipping magnates, Sir John and Lady Ellerman and is known for having one of the most beautiful ocean views in South Africa.
The Ellerman House Wine Gallery
Integrating outstanding contemporary architecture with breathtaking sculptural elements and cutting-edge design, the new Ellerman House Wine Gallery is not only a showcase for this extensive, award-winning wine collection but offers guests a unique, interactive journey into the world of wine.
It aims to bring to life South Africa’s 350-year old heritage of winemaking, providing an environment for tasting and learning about local wines as intriguing and inspiring as the wine itself. Sophisticated storage is provided in state-of-the-art wine racks and separate, temperature-controlled maturation cellars for white and red wines. The gallery incorporates an interactive multi-media wine library and brandy tasting lounge. There is also a Champagne cellar, stocked exclusively with rare and special vintages of Dom Pérignon. Guests have access to a wine App for iPad that provides detailed information about the wine estates and tasting notes for each of the wines featured on the hotel’s wine list.
