Immerse in the Ultimate Glenelly Estate Winemaker Experiences with Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts

From the serene shores of Atmosphere Kanifushi and VARU by Atmosphere to the lush vineyards of Stellenbosch, embark on a wine journey this August 2024.

Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, a distinguished brand under Atmosphere Core, is delighted to present a series of exclusive winemaker experiences featuring Glenelly Estate. These events will be hosted on the private islands of Atmosphere Kanifushi and VARU by Atmosphere.

Event Dates:

  • Atmosphere Kanifushi: 25th - 27th August 2024

  • VARU by Atmosphere: 29th - 31st August 2024

Guests will indulge in elegant wine pairing dinners and vibrant beachside soirées, all part of the inclusive Holiday Plans—Kanifushi Plan™ and VARU Plan™. Lia Poveda, Lady May’s trusted confidant and global representative of Glenelly Estates, will personally host these remarkable events.

Nicolas Laguette, Director of Wines at Atmosphere Core, states,


“We are proud to elevate the Maldives as a notable destination on the global wine map. Visitors are drawn not only by our pristine beaches and coral lagoons but also by our unique terroir wines and rich winemaking heritage.”


Returning this year after a successful 2023 event at VARU by Atmosphere, Glenelly Estate continues its collaboration with Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts. Lady May, a revered figure in winemaking, epitomizes the fusion of tradition and innovation—a philosophy shared with Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts. Now 99, she left Bordeaux 25 years ago to champion Stellenbosch, bringing her lineage’s legacy and expertise to new heights.

Lia Poveda will also collaborate with the award-winning culinary teams at Atmosphere Kanifushi and VARU by Atmosphere, conducting workshops and blind tastings to enhance their wine knowledge and service, ensuring all guests—from aficionados to curious novices—enjoy an unparalleled experience.

Since 2021, Atmosphere Core has been cultivating a distinct wine culture centered on Authenticity and the Joy of Giving. Initially launched with the luxury brand THE OZEN COLLECTION, the program has expanded to include COLOURS OF OBLU and Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, partnering with esteemed wineries like Glenelly Estate (Stellenbosch) and Bodegas Martín Códax (Rías Baixas).

Founded in 2003 by the illustrious Bordeaux winemaker Madame May de Lencquesaing, Glenelly Estate is renowned for producing elegant, age-worthy vintages. Nestled on the scenic southern slopes of Simonsberg in Stellenbosch, South Africa, Glenelly Estate wines are now exclusively available at Atmosphere Core resorts in the Maldives.
