Henri Martin, Gloria's owner and once Mayor of Saint Julien was one of Médoc's legendary figures. In 1956 he became President of the Interprofessional Committee of Bordeaux Wines. Beginning in the 1940's, Henri Martin assembled the vineyards of Château Gloria with parcels of land from such neighbouring vineyards as Léoville-Poyferré, Gruaud-Larose, Saint Pierre and Duhart-Milon. The property is now run and managed by his son-in-law, Jean-Louis Triaud.
