Marius Cloete viticulturist @ Glen Carlou
Marius is a man who is happiest with his hands in the soil of Glen Carlou’s vineyard blocks. He has an extensive and in-depth understanding of every vine planted and every square meter of our wine farm. His insights are wide-ranging and proven as he delights in guiding each vine to maturity.
Marius routinely checks weather forecasts for rain, wind and shine but has an instinctive feel how the day, week or month ahead will unfold. His appreciation for and nurturing of vines ensures he protects and monitors each plant so that they keep on delivering exceptional grapes. Grapes which under the watchful eye of Glen Carlou’s Cellarmaster, Johnnie Calitz, become extraordinary wines.
