Bancroft adds Glaetzer to portfolio

Published:  06 February, 2019

Bancroft Wines will become exclusive UK agents for Barossa Valley winery, Glaetzer, from mid March.

“As we expand our Australian portfolio, we are carefully seeking out producers who are the absolute benchmarks of their appellations,” said Bancroft Wines CEO Jon Worsley. “Glaetzer has long represented the pinnacle of terroir-driven, quality focused Barossa winemaking, and we couldn’t be prouder to work with Ben Glaetzer and his team.”

Originally from Germany, the Glaetzer family settled in Australia in the late 19th century and were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley. The family-owned boutique winery was founded in 1995 and produces “super-premium, site-specific red wine made in small volumes”.

Glaetzer Wines proprietor Ben Glaetzer said: “We have over a 20 year proud history in the UK where we have established strong relationships, and the UK market is very important for us. Glaetzer is about to embark on an exciting new era of growth and we are delighted to be partnering with Bancroft Wines in the UK on this journey”.

At the beginning of this week Bancroft announced that it is now the official agent for Château de Berne in the UK. 

Dating back to the 11th century, Château de Berne covers over 500 hectares of land in the inland Haut Var region of Provence. Around 130 of those hectares are vineyards. It’s also known for its 5-star Relais & Châteaux hotel & Michelin Star restaurant.
