The Glaetzer family has been a part of the Barossa Valley and its viticulture history since 1888. After thirty years of winemaking, Colin Glaetzer established the family winery to create wines he's passionate about - limited quantities of benchmark Barossa Valley reds. Today, his son Ben carries on this winemaking tradition at Glaetzer Wines.
Glaetzer Wines holds a firm belief that the wines are made in the vineyard - a combination of the French notion 'terroir' and Australian vineyard site knowledge. All grapes for Glaetzer Wines are taken from the small sub-region of the northern Barossa Valley, called Ebenezer.
These ancient dry-grown vineyards of the Ebenezer district are an important part of Australia’s winemaking heritage and a living link to traditional Barossa viticulture.
Exceptional fruit from a loyal group of third and fourth generation Barossa grape growers is the backbone of Glaetzer wines, allowing them to produce an impressive range of red wines. This includes the always popular Wallace Shiraz Grenache, Bishop Shiraz and the flagship Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz.
