Nick Glaetzer began his winemaking journey with his family in the Barossa Valley, following with vintages in the Languedoc, the Pfalz, Margaret River, the Riverland, Sunraysia, the Hunter Valley and Burgundy. In 2005 Nick landed in Tasmania, searching for cool-climate, super-premium vineyards; perfect for crafting pinot noir, riesling and savoury shiraz.
Established in 2008, Glaetzer-Dixon is now an eminent Tasmanian winemaker. The Glaetzer family of winemakers has roots in the Barossa Valley dating back to 1888. In 2011 Nick was named "young winemaker of the year" by Gourmet traveller magazine. Also in 2011 Nicks 2010 Mon Pere Shiraz was awarded the prestigious Jimmy Watson's memorial trophy at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show - the first time in the trophy's 50 year history for a Tasmanian wine.
