For visitors the memory of Glenwood vineyard often begins with the long drive down a typically South African gravel track. Once found though, Glenwood is the hidden gem of Franschhoek.
DP Burger the winemaker and manager of the vineyard is passionate about Glenwood wines, and has seen Glenwood develop as a vineyard right from the beginning. He seeks perfection in his wine making, and with his Glenwood Chardonnay Vignerons Selection picking up Decanter Gold Medals in past years he is not far off! Using new French Oak as well as toasted barrels, his understanding of cooperage is second to none.
The Glenwood Sauvignon Blanc is another of Glenwood’s hit wines, moving away from the typical big fruit flavours and instead offering up a more French style minerality. Semillion, Shiraz and Merlot varietals make up the remainder of the Glenwood range. A stunning guest cottage sits at the heart of the vineyard, and a stay here alongside a personal tasting with DP Burger is one of the most exciting rewards available through our loyalty scheme.
