Glaetzer versus Glaetzer
One successful winemaker in the family is usually plenty, but this Australian clan doesn’t do things by half. Since the day he was born, Ben Glaetzer has been surrounded by vineyards, and immersed in a family tradition of making wine. There was no question he would follow suit. After all, it was in his genes. Fast-forward 38 years and the Barossa Valley winemaker is the successful name behind the lauded Amon-Ra Shiraz, and the designer behind its striking hieroglyphic label. He co-owns and runs the family business, Glaetzer Wine, which his father Colin created in 1995.
