Why in 2003 did May de Lencquesaing, then owner of the famous Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande (a well known classified growth in Bordeaux), purchase the Glenelly Estate in Stellenbosch? Because she believes in the soil, the micro climate and the potential for quality wines in South Africa, as well as continuing the French heritage of wine making in South Africa. So far her gamble has paid off, with American magazine Wine Spectator, as well as many other influential guides, awarding top marks for their wines.
Join Madame’s grandson Nicolas at Vivat Bannhus as he talks you through these wines showcasing a mineral driven Chardonnay and their prestigious age worthy Bordeaux style ‘Grand Vin’s’. Come and see the potential for yourselves!
