Winemaker @ Glen Carlou
Johnnie Calitz is only the fourth winemaker since Glen Carlou was founded in 1985. It is our winemakers’ collective passion which has ensured the crafting of exceptional wines for almost three decades.
Johnnie sees nature as the most dominant force in every winemaking approach and he has made it his mission is to craft elegant wines with a real sense of uniqueness – balanced and expressive to the Simonsberg-Paarl terroir.
“Preparedness for me is also key, with attention to detail throughout the production process. My intent is to make the best and most interesting wines, keeping within the Glen Carlou tradition.”
