Glen Carlou is one of my favorite wineries in this region. I had not been in years so during this trip, we stopped in. It was as lovely an experience as always. The woman that poured our wine chatted with us for a long time and it felt like we had met a new friend when we left. She was... More

We had an amazing experience! The view is stunning - set on a hill overlooking the beautiful vineyards with Paarl rock and mountains in the distance. The food is outstanding - especially the Pork Belly. Service was impeccable and the wine is divine to top it all off! Definitely recommend the Merlot- easy drinking wine and the Viognier was our...

We really enjoyed the wine tasting. The staff were fantastic and juggled a very busy tasting room without breaking a sweat. Their recommendations were accurate and we thoroughly enjoyed the tasting. They even called the next wine farm on our journey to confirm whether the kitchen was still open. Very helpful and fantastic value for money.

Visited Glen Carlou by chance after our poor experience at Babylonstoren up the road. The venue, service and wine was fantastic. A special note to complement Zane who was the perfect brand ambassador. We will be back!
