The traditional winery Peter Lehmann
Peter Lehmann founded the Masterton Barossa Vignerons winery in the Barossa Valley in 1978. The son of a German-born Lutheran preacher, Lehmann started the winery by purchasing grapes from a number of contract winemakers in the Barossa. The first bottlings took place in 1980 and two years later, the thoughtfully growing company was renamed Peter Lehmann Wines.
The secret of Peter Lehmann's winemaking success
The maxim of Peter Lehmann since the 70s was to pay attention to a constant but manageable and above all healthy growth. Since then, the small winery has grown into one of the largest wine producing companies in South Australia. The principle of buying grapes from the vineyards of South Australian contract winemakers has hardly changed since the company was founded. Peter Lehmann contributes about 2% of his total required grape volume from 50ha of in-house vineyards. Although Peter Lehmann has retired with his wife and the company is now owned by a major Swiss investor, the Lehmann family remains involved - his son Doug is the current managing director and, as expected, keeps his father's quality standards high.
