Glenelly is on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. Why in 2003 did May de Lencquesaing, then owner of famous Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, purchase the estate? Because she believes in the soil, the micro climate and the potential for quality wines. Because she believes in continuing the French heritage of wine making in South Africa going back more that tree centuries. Because she believes in this great country and its people.
