Over the years, GlenWood has been heavily involved in the following industry and community initiatives:

Vignerons de Franschhoek, the organisation to which 52 wine farms/cellars belong which promotes Franschhoek wines, underwrites educational programmes for sommeliers, offers technical tastings for winemakers, and contributes to the wine tourism offering of Franschhoek Wine Valley, the valley’s tourism organisation.

Bhabhathane, a multi-year programme to transform the education landscape in the valley. Its scope includes the 24 Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres and their 850 learners between ages 0 and 5, the estimated 700 children of the same age who are not in any form of educational facility, and the 250 teachers in the 7 schools who teach 5,500 learners from Grade R through to Grade 12.
