Mr Glover Wines
When it comes to professional wine people, Ben Glover is about as top-of-the-tree as it gets.
He has ” Chief Winemaker” and “Director of Winemaking” titles from internationally acclaimed brands such as Wither Hill, Lindauer, Huntaway and Corbans on his resume, and was most recently group Winemaker for Accolade New Zealand, sourcing fruit from Hawke’s Bay, Waipara, Marlborough and Central Otago for brands such as Mud House. There are trophy cabinets all over the country creaking under the weight of all the heavy metal Ben’s wines have won over the years , which is why he is now considered one of the most talented and respected winemakers in the business.
Ben is a past Wine Marlborough committee member, chair of the Bragato Wine Show (New Zealand’s only single vineyard wine show) and was chair of Pinot Noir 2017 New Zealand, the world’s largest and most prestigious pinot noir event, held every four years in Wellington.
Ben was also the inaugural Len Evans scholar in 2001 and has over 25 years of experience as a national and international wine judge, testimony to his dedication to quality wine – both as a winemaker and as an appreciative wine drinker.
