Attraction details
Owner description: GlenWood is a very special place. Located in the little-known valley of Robertsvlei, a few kilometers from Franschhoek, close to Cape Town, the farm is surrounded by aspects of outstanding natural beauty. Using only the best materials and sustainable viticulturist practices, we have developed the farm over the past twenty seven years, winning numerous awards for our vineyards and our hand-crafted wines. Our credo, "simple, natural, quality", pervades our thinking across all parts of the business; simple, be it architecture, label design or the way we approach decisions; natural, be it the farming practices we use, the wine making process itself, or the replanting of indigenous fynbos throughout the farm; quality, be it of the grapes we produce, the wines we vinify, or the human relationships we foster on and off the farm.

This estate winery is tucked away in the hills just outside of Franschhoek, but well worth a visit!

The setting is stunning. The service was exceptional. The wines were excellent! What more can I say?

We had a great experience sitting on the patio, soaking up the sun and the incredible views, and tasting the wines. The fee was R30 for 6 wines, which they waive with any wine purchase. We walked away with a few bottles of the Semillon and the Chardonnay...both varietals that aren't usually my favourites, but these were delicious.

Such a great find. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place!
