Welcome to Glen Carlou

In 2012 Glen Carlou celebrated its 25th vintage – a comparatively young Estate in the South African wine industry – yet we are proud to say, we have built a reputation as one of South Africa’s leading producers. Under the ownership and management of the world-renowned Hess Family, we continue to produce wines of exceptional quality and consistency, growing from strength to strength.

Since 1985, we have only had three winemakers – whose collective passion has ensured that Glen Carlou has produced consistently exceptional wines for almost three decades. For us, creating classic, award-winning wines is a wonderful and gratifying journey, but it is not the destination.

Consistency, expertise and a commitment to always deliver beyond expectation is what we strive for with every bottle of Glen Carlou wine. This is why we are known as the ‘Curators of Classic Wines’.
