Wine Tasting

As a small winery, all guests at GlenWood will find a friendly and personal environment in which hosts are keen to impart knowledge about the farm, its wines, and helpful tasting procedures if required. Tastings are typically presented outside on the terrace, or inside if the weather is inclement. Guests have three wine tasting options:

Each option uses a different approach to wine tasting and each has a different time requirement. Click on the tasting titles above to learn more about each option.

Showcase wine tasting

A tutored tasting of five wines pre-selected from our range, of which at least one is from our Grand Duc range. Learn how the professionals taste and build confidence in discussing your own conclusions about the wines. Typical time required is one hour.



Vine to bottle tour

Join a small tour during which a brief introduction to GlenWood is presented. The tour then moves to the vineyards where viticultural practices are explained, and wines made from grapes harvested in specific blocks are tasted. The tour then moves to the cellar where crushing, fermentation, maturation and bottling are discussed. Different wines are tasted during the tour, including a barrel tasting in the Grand Duc Cellar which houses all GlenWood’s Grand Duc wines during fermentation and maturation. Typical time required is two hours.

Nature's Window

Nature’s Window is GlenWood’s “tasting room in the mountain”. The walk takes approximately twenty-minutes, ascends some 70 meters and passes through masses of indigenous fynbos. The natural beauty of the Robertsvlei Valley and surrounding Hottentots Holland mountains are astonishingly beautiful.

A minimum of eight guests is required to undertake this tasting option, for which specific wines may be selected and specific snacks may be ordered on the basis of which the price per person will be confirmed. Typical time required is three hours.
