Like several of Marlborough's grapegrowers, the Glovers were originally farmers who, in the mid 1980s, realised there would be better returns per hectare if their farmland was converted into vineyard. After some consideration, this third-generation farming family decided to realise the potential of their Dillon's Pt property and in 1985 the 100-hectare farm's transformation began, garlic and dairy cows making way for grapes, reports The Marlborough Express.
