Winemaking patriarch Colin Glaetzer established his own label to create wines he's passionate about – limited quantities of benchmark Barossa Valley reds. Today, Ben Glaetzer carries on this family winemaking tradition and has created a small, focused portfolio of classic Barossa Valley reds which draw on traditional Barossa viticulture but are unmistakably new wave Barossa in style.

The exceptional fruit for all Glaetzer wines is supplied by a loyal group of third and fourth generation Barossa grape growers and comes from a small sub-region (1.5 sq miles) of the Barossa Valley called Ebenezer. The dry-grown vines range from 30-120 years old and are a unique part of Australia's viticultural heritage; producing wines of great intensity and elegance.

The Australian Langtons Fine Wine Guide wrote "Glaetzer is one of the emerging stars of the Barossa... philosophically and by heritage." Both Bishop and Wallace are available year round, but the limited production and significant demand for both Annaperenna and Amon-Ra mean that allocations must be requested for every new vintage release.
