Consistency, expertise and a commitment
Situated in the heart of South Africa’s sought-after Paarl Valley, Glen Carlou enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate of warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters. This, together with an exciting variety of slopes and the richness of our soils, creates unique wine-growing conditions. Perfect for nurturing healthy, flavoursome grapes that reflect the inherent characteristics of our terroir.
As a founding member of the Klapmuts Community Trust, Glen Carlou contributes towards providing the children at the local Klapmuts School with one square meal a day. We are proud to have facilitated own-title housing for all of our staff within the Klapmuts community and all houses have had solar powered hot water systems installed.
Streetsmart South Africa – Glen Carlou has been a proud supporter of Streetsmart since 2009 and is the founding member of the Paarl Chapter. Streetsmart South Africa is registered as a Non-Profit Organisation and a Public Benefit Organisation and has been in operation since 2005. All the funds raised in restaurants go to selected and approved organizations that run programs for the normalization of street and vulnerable children.
Our dedication to sustainable farming is inspired by our company philosophy of ‘being custodians of the land and preserving it for future generations’. Glen Carlou’s worldwide reputation for quality wines has been built on the mission of delivering handcrafted wines reflecting our distinctive terroir.
The Integrity & Sustainability seal is the result of collaboration between the Wine & Spirits Board, IPW, as well as the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI) and Wines of South Africa (WOSA) with the generic marketing body responsible for the worldwide launch of the concept as part of its Brand South Africa campaign.
Together these organisations are driving the South African wine industry’s commitment to sustainable, eco-friendly production. We are not just advocating green, we are practising it!
