Talk & Taste with Ben Glover from Glover Family Vineyards

Time

18:00

Place

Zoom Meeting
300-2170 Boul. Rene-Levesque Ouest
Montreal, Québec

The Glover family are grape growers at Dillon’s Point in Marlborough along the banks of the Opaoa River. The winery was previously a dairy farm, but sick of the early morning starts (as early as 4 a.m.), Owen Glover decided to convert to vineyards in 1988. His eldest son Ben studied winemaking and spent some years in senior winemaking roles before joining the family business full time in 2016 to run the winery operation. Their Massey Dacta wines are named after Massey Ferguson tractors, which were widely present in New Zealand as the Glover kids were growing up.

Join us for a TALK & TASTE with Ben Glover!

Ben will present his wines and talk about his winery with Opimian Members.

This is a great opportunity to discover Glover wines and the people behind them. It is also your chance to directly ask questions to the winemakers before placing your order!


Les Glover sont une famille de viticulteurs à Dillon’s Point, à Marlborough, le long de la rivière Opaoa. Le vignoble était auparavant une ferme laitière, mais Owen Glover en a eu assez de se lever très tôt le matin (parfois dès 4 heures) et a décidé de convertir la ferme en vignoble en 1988. Ben, son fils aîné, a étudié la vinification et a passé quelques années à des postes vigneron avant de se joindre à l’entreprise familiale à temps plein en 2016. La gamme Massey Dacta tire son nom des tracteurs Massey Ferguson, qui étaient très répandus en Nouvelle-Zélande lorsque les Glover étaient enfants.

Rencontrez virtuellement Ben Glover pour notre PARLONS VIN, Ben nous présentera ses vins et parlera de son entreprise avec les membres Opimian. C'est l'occasion de découvrir les vins de la famille Glover et les personnes derrière les vins. Vous pourrez poser vos questions directement aux vignerons avant de placer vos commandes!
