Glen Carlou

Glen Carlou is part of the Swiss-owned Hess Family Estates, and our dedication to sustainable farming is a strong indication of the group’s philosophy of ‘being custodians of the land and preserving it for future generations’. Our approach clearly is one of not manipulating, but rather of farming in harmony with Nature.

Glen Carlou’s worldwide reputation for quality wines has been built on the mission of delivering handcrafted wines reflecting our distinctive terroir.
