With the opening of a new wine gallery at Ellerman House (www.ellerman.co.za), oenophiles can experience the South African winelands without leaving Cape Town. Debuted in December at the cliff-top Bantry Bay resort, the three-story lounge and cellar houses more than 7,500 bottles of South African wines sourced from Constantia to the Prince Albert Valley. Serving as the centerpiece of the space is a 10-foot, glass-enclosed carbon-fiber wine rack resembling a giant corkscrew. Guests can enjoy wine by the glass or bottle at the carved-stone bar, or venture into the cellar below for a tasting of rare Dom Pérignon vintages. Throughout the gallery—which also includes a brandy-tasting lounge and a private dining room—details such as raw timber walls, granite floors with copper accents, and a terroir wall with soil from 100 South African wine farms connect visitors to the country’s viticultural landscapes.
