about Glen Carlou

Glen Carlou Vineyards is minutes away from the university town of Stellenbosch and less than 35 minutes’ drive from Cape Town. Situated in the Simonsberg-Paarl region of South Africa’s Western Cape, our estate was transformed from being a dairy farm in 1985 to a wine farm.

Walter Finlayson acquired the property known as ‘Len Carlou’. He not only enhanced the name, but with his affinity for Burgundian wines, the first vine plantings were those of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. After a 13-year period of ownership by the Swiss based Hess Group, Glen Carlou transferred back to local ownership in 2016 when a South African family consortium purchased the estate.
