Es­tab­lished in 2000, ERKE spe­cial­izes in high-qual­ity leisurewear and sports­wear, and has spon­sored a se­ries of world-class ten­nis tour­na­ments, such as the Aus­tralian Open, the WTA and the ATP. Now, ERKE, a pa­tron of the South Africa Olympic Com­mit­tee, is avail­able in South Africa. The first store, which opened in Gar­dens Shop­ping Cen­tre, Cape Town, has quickly be­come a pop­u­lar choice for life­style and sports fash­ion. Cus­tomers can find a wide range of qual­ity prod­ucts in­clud­ing ERKE’s ul­tra-light shoe, a mi­cro­col­lar polo shirt and a down jacket. 021-465-4945 Sit­u­ated on the out­skirts of Stel­len­bosch, the beau­ti­ful grounds of the 300-year-old Lanz­erac wine es­tate set the scene for our re­laxed weekend get­away.On ar­rival, we en­joyed drinks on our room’s pri­vate pa­tio, but an op­tion dur­ing win­ter is to un­wind by an open fire­place in one of the property’s el­e­gant lounge or din­ing spots, fea­tur­ing orig­i­nal antiques.
