Glenwood Vineyards

Franschhoek Wine Valley


GlenWood is a family owned boutique winery close to Franschhoek. Its credo of simple, natural quality occupies a central focus of operations. The Roberstvlei valley, in which the farm is situated, was first surveyed in 1811 and became a general-purpose farm. Alastair Wood purchased it in 1984 to pursue his dream of farming and producing wine. Some 30ha of vineyards were planted and a 200-ton cellar built in 2000. The wine is made by "DP" Burger, who has been with GlenWood since its earliest incarnation.
