Description: La Gratitude was built in 1798 by the first Reverend of Stellenbosch. It boasts a blend of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture and is known as ?The Grand Old Lady?. The building has been gently and tastefully renovated to provide the home for Ernie Els?s new signature wine bar and restaurant.
We serve a wide selection of more than 170 wines, some of which you can sample from the cellars of the owners. Our proprietors own Rupert wines with L?Ormarins and Anthonij Rupert wines; Rust en Vrede; Guardian Peak; Ernie Els Wines and Audacia Wines. The fifth partner owns Villa di Buona Speranza olive oil from Lucca in Italy which is especially imported for using at The Big Easy
