Barossa Valley, Australia
Only in his early 40s, maker of the famed Amon Ra - Ben Glaetzer is already recognized as one of the most celebrated winemakers in Australia! Ben joined his father, Colin, at Glaetzer Wines after gaining experience from different wineries. With Ben’s keen nose and taste buds for style, combined with his meticulous work ethic and grapes from the renowned Ebenezer region, no wonder Glaetzer stands out from the rest! The estate obtained numerous awards along the way, not just for the wines but as the top winemaker himself. Deemed “Baron of the Barossa” by the region, Ben strives to showcase the elegance of the fruit and the land (or terroir) in his wines.
