Neil Ellis has long been considered an innovator whose vision changed the course of the South African wine industry. He has journeyed from pioneering négociant beginnings in the early 1980’s, seeking out parcels of interesting vines to make exceptional wines under his own name, to a well-established family enterprise with a local and international reputation for exceptional elegance and quality.
Today the journey of Neil Ellis Wines is not only about Neil Ellis. After 40 years of making wine, the next stage of the journey has begun with Neil’s son, Warren Ellis. At a young age, Warren was helping his father in the winery. Like many around the wine world who grow up surrounded by vineyards and winemaking, Warren developed the passion to be a winemaker. He holds both a BSc and MSc Agric in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of Stellenbosch. He has travelled the European wine world learning viticulture and cellar practices. Since 2006, Warren has been part of the Neil Ellis wine team as winemaker with viticultural responsibilities.
