Winemaker & Managing Director
Louis has been part of the team since 1998 and in his career has distinguished himself as an exceptionally gifted winemaker. His core focus is producing red blends, which he has done with great success. He has never been shy to experiment with new and exciting varietals to add value to a blend. His understanding of the terroir and performance levels of these vineyards has been a key ingredient to the success of his wines.
Duncan first began work with the Ernie Els Wines portfolio in 2003, and has enjoyed being part of the journey the brand has undergone in that time. He is still as passionate today about progressing the brand to new heights, and believes that the best years still lie ahead.
