The Sommeliers Selection offers a different perspective to other wine competitions and ratings. The wines are assessed exclusively by professionally trained sommeliers who evaluate entries as they would consider wines for designing a wine list. 


There was a conversation over the weekend with a group of wine enthusiasts visiting us for a tasting about wine competitions. It centered around how does one find the light through the sea of competitions and awards out there. Some rather sage advice from a Cape Wine Master who was also at the tasting was to find a like minded commentator or judge and follow their commentary. As this might help in your wine decision making process.

We never need an excuse to drink Chardonnay, in fact we encourage it, even if it is just to celebrate this day. 


Harvest at Glen Carlou is very hands-on. Many of our 35 vineyard and cellar team members have been with us for an extraordinary number of years. They understand the lay of the land and the development of the vines throughout the seasons. They know how to work their way through a vineyard when the grapes are at optimal ripeness.


Autumn is one of the most abundant seasons with a wonderful spread of vegetables. Inspired by the umami notes of aubergines and mushrooms, the vibrancy of young beets and peas and the pure decadence of ripe figs, Executive Chef Johan Stander has once again created a delicious new menu.


Wildlife conservation is something we are very passionate about and we believe that it is our responsibility to conserve this treasure for future generations.


Le Creuset and Lindt are synonymous with quality and excellence – two key traits defining the Glen Carlou winemaking approach and evident in the delicate pink Pinot Noir Rosé. Buy a box of Rosés for someone special or treat yourself to an easy drinking wine – perfect for sharing with friends, enjoying over lazy lunches or sipping at sunset. 


Chef Johan Stander from Glen Carlou shares one of his favourite desserts – a vibrant and tantalising berry sorbet. This sorbet is not only easy to make but is also a no-guilt treat for all still trying to respect their new year resolutions.
