Connection of Classic and Modernity
The architecture at the winery unites the classic architecture of the main building with the modern, simultaneously spectacular construction of the wine cellar. The modern wine cellar is perfectly integrated into the natural surroundings of the winery due to the ochre shades that mirror the colour of the surrounding soil. Additionally, there is a green shade that can be found again on the bottom part of the building and that excellently blends in with the environment.
The Philosophy at the Winery
The team of the proprietor May-Eliane de Lencquesaing follows a clear and successful philosophy. They go to great lengths to produce the wines as unaltered as possible, using natural fermentation without adding further ingredients. The team harvests the grapes earlier than usual in order to receive a wine with a low alcohol content and a unique freshness whilst simultaneously having ripe tannins. All members of staff try to intervene as little as possible into the actual ripening process, because natural, good grapes make for a good wine.
The Glass Collection of Glenelly
The owner of the estate Glenelly, May-Eliane de Lencquesaing, passionately collects glass in all kinds of variations and shapes, which visitors can marvel at besides the first class wine at the winery. This passion is also mirrored in the so-called Glass Collection. It stands for exceptional wines from the noblest grapes. May is convinced that wine and glass share a variety of mutual attributes. Both originate from the earth and just the craftsmanship of humans makes them something special.
