Glen Carlou

Paarl Valley, South Africa

Consistency, expertise and a commitment to always deliver beyond expectation is what we strive for with every bottle of Glen Carlou wine. Established in 1985, Glen Carlou is a relatively young estate which has built an enviable reputation as one of South Africa’s leading producers. Nestled in the heart of the Paarl Winelands, with vineyards at the foothills of the renowned Simonsberg Mountain, our grapes revel in their terroir. 

Situated in the heart of South Africa’s sought-after Paarl Valley, Glen Carlou enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate of warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters. This, together with an exciting variety of slopes and the richness of our soils, creates unique wine-growing conditions. Perfect for nurturing healthy, flavoursome grapes that reflect the inherent characteristics of our terroir.

A dynamic and highly motivated team contributes to our success. More than two decades’ experience has equipped us with intimate knowledge of the conditions prevailing at Glen Carlou. It is in combining our spirit of free-thinking and enterprise with a mutual pursuit of excellence that we shape the distinctive Glen Carlou personality. In 2017 Glen Carlou marks its 30th harvest of Chardonnay.
