Considered one of Australia’s best winemakers by wine writers and wine-lovers alike. In his nearly ten years at Bannockburn, Michael achieved pre-eminence in the wine world. A Nelson boy at heart, Michael now leads the winemaking team at Woollastons Mahana Winery. 

As a teenager, Michael helped his father (Dave Glover) plant the family vineyard in Upper Moutere, then studied winemaking at Charles Sturt University in NSW. His winemaking experience also extends to France, Germany, and Italy as well as Australia.
