Webb Ellis bridges the way going forward, embracing the past, the present and the future. The wine is symbolic of the sharing of knowledge and wisdom from generation to generation, marrying traditional methods with new techniques, and embodying a spirit of innovation, open mindedness and joint respect.
The wine takes its name from the Ellis and Webb families: Stephanie Ellis (née Webb) is Neil’s wife and has been his pillar of strength throughout the years. It honours the journey of Neil Ellis Wines from a solo venture to a highly reputed family business. All three of Neil and Stephanie’s children play an important role in the business: Warren, who graduated in viticulture and oenology and has a MSc in viticulture, is responsible for the vines and winemaking, Charl heads the sales team while Margot looks after the brand and marketing. Neil is the indispensable mentor, guiding career paths and ensuring that the family takes Neil Ellis Wines to the next level.

Deep bright red colour with a dark core. The aromatics reveal red and black fruits with licorice and Cedar notes. The palate is tight, fresh, and elegant. The structure and texture weave into a tightly focused, multi-dimensional continuum. Fine yet dense tannin conspire with bright acidity.
