Add pro golfer Ernie Els to the growing list of celebrity athletes who are heavily involved in the wine business. Els began his venture into wines in 1999 and rapidly expanded, opening his Ernie Els Winery in South Africa in 2004. His Ernie Ells Wines, which include six South African reds, continue to be top sellers.
Ernie drinks wine... And you can tell because his wines are bloody marvelous. Sure it's commercial and the koi fish are maybe a bridge too far but I don't care. I love the red wines that he stamps his name on. This one is the "cheap and cheerful" of the lot but don't be fooled it's a sexy little number which is so drinkable you're in danger of waking up naked with your face in a pizza box. Easy like Sunday morning without a hangover.
