Our Story

Glup is a collaboration between two friends from different continents who teamed up during 2012 - Chilean producer Julio Bouchon and South African winemaker David Nieuwoudt.

Julio - a descendent of a French wine pioneer who settled in Chile in 1887- is a journalist by profession and a winemaker at heart. He oversees client relations and participates in wine tastings and blends decisions. Julio enjoys expressing his passion for the great outdoors through the wine he creates. The prestigious Decanter magazine (UK) acknowledged Julio among the 10 top winemakers of South America.

David -the owner of Cederberg, one of South Africa’s most prestigious wineries - completed his studies at the Elsenburg Agricultural College of South Africa. The wines produced by his vineyard Cederberg Private Cellar –with five generations and counting- have been recognized repeatedly by Decanter and other publications.
