WIN with Glen Carlou

I recently visited the Glen Carlou wine estate to celebrate their 30th Chardonnay harvest.

Having only been established in 1985, their picturesque estate is relatively young among its more time-honoured neighbours, but has managed to make quite a name for itself as one of South Africa’s leading wine producers – currently the proud producers of no less than three vintages – their latest Glen Carlou Unwooded Chardonnay 2017, their classic Glen Carlou Chardonnay 2015 and, finally, their flagship Glen Carlou Quartz Stone 2014 –and after all that I tasted on my visit, I am excited to see what the new harvest will bring and the magic that will come from it.


I must add how I was pleasantly surprised to discover how this spot is filled with awesome things to do, besides trying some of its award –winning wines & learning about the art of wine making.

I love food, so indulging in a delicious food & wine paired menu at the Restaurant @ Glen Carlou, was quite a treat – read more on that HERE. The art gallery on the premises, curated by artist, Alex Hamilton, consists of a collection of contemporary, pop & modern artworks by South African artists taught me a thing or two. And ending the day with a walk through the beautiful Zen Garden [quite the Instagram worthy spot by the way] rounded up the day perfectly.


I really enjoyed this experience and thought it would be great to allow my readers to get a chance to enjoy it too. Here is what is up for grabs:
