WINERY OF THE MONTH
Peter Lehmann Wines
Founded in 1979, Peter Lehmann Wines produces around 600,000 cases annually, with distribution to Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States and many other countries. It is located in the Barossa Valley, approximately 70 kilometres north of Adelaide in South Australia.
In 1977, Saltram instructed then winemaker/manager Peter Lehmann to buy less grapes from their Barossa growers. Since Peter had given the growers his word to buy the grapes, he refused. After months of negotiations with Dalgety plc, which owned Saltram, he was allowed to start an outside company called Masterson Barossa Vineyards in order to buy and process the grapes. Tyre retailer MS Mcleod gave financial backing to the venture. The inspiration of the name came from the legendary gambler Sky Masterson, because starting the company was such a gamble, and in keeping with the theme the Queen of Clubs was chosen as the logo for the company.
This month we have Peter Lehmann as our winery of the month. Peter Lehmann, known as the Baron of the Barossa, he sadly passed away last year at the ripe old age of 82. Peter was instrumental on putting Australian wine on the world table.
Some of the recent accolades were:
International wine maker of the year 2003 & 2006 & Australian producer of the year 2003 , 2006 & 2008.
