Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

John and Margarete Glaetzer’s family business produces John's Blend. They had a vision of creating their own unique premium wine label - John’s Blend was the result. First vintaged in 1974, the Cabernet Sauvignon was created under this new label. John’s Blend was an instant success when it was released in 1977. The then youthful John had already worked with some of the greats of Australian wine, including John Vickery and starting work with Wolf Blass after graduating from the Oenology course in 1970.

John’s Blend developed side-by-side with John’s own prominent role in Wolf Blass Wines as the senior red winemaker.

The result was hardly surprising; for John’s part in the story of Wolf Blass Wines, resulted in winning an unrivalled four of the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophies for Australia’s top red wine 1974, 1975, 1976, and 1999. Also winning eleven Montgomery Trophies for the finest red wines at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show, to name just a few of the awards.

It would be fair to say that in Australia’s fine wine making fraternity there are few others who share, with John Glaetzer, the extent and depth of contribution to super premium red wine.

With over thirty years experience in fine wine making, John continues to provide the unique experience of John’s Blend to connoisseurs from around the world.

In 1995 - Margarete’s Shiraz was added. A wine that is rich and intense - a perfect companion to the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Both strictly limited wines, the John’s Blend companions, are as friendly and as rewarding as its maker; and reflects, like John and Margarete themselves, the richness and enjoyment of Australian finest wine regions and their people.
