French Tradition at the Winery Glenelly

In the 17th century, the father of wine cultivation Simon van der Stel gave what is today the winery Glenelly to the Frenchman François Villion. The farm in the Idas valley on the hills of the Simonsberg changed owners twice in the 19th century before it went into the possession of May-Eliane de Lencquesaing in 2003. She had been running the famous winery Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in France for over 30 years, yet was so convinced from the unique terroir at the Cape that it drew her to the ‘most beautiful corner of the world’ to South Africa in order to create exceptional wines according to old French tradition there. May accepted the new challenge and is mastering it with an exceptional success since, as she creates new wines on a very high level together with her team year after year.
