The Glover family had been dairy farming in Marlborough for four generations, milk was in the blood. When Owen Glover finally realised that none of his children wanted to get up at 4am each morning to milk cows, he converted the farm to vines.
The 30-hectare family property is planted in Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris. Nineteen years later, led by eldest son Ben, the family launched Zephyr, a range of single vineyard wines from the farm.
The name Zephyr characterises the prevailing wind that complements Marlborough’s unique climate. Zephyr wines embrace the dynamic spirit of the Glover family and the lively aromatics of the vineyards.
