Peter Lehmann, Winemaker, Barossa Valley It's now part of Barossa legend that Peter Lehmann established the winery in the late 1970s, to protect the livelihood of growers, his mates, who were facing financial ruin. Each of the succeeding decades provided its own challenge and was characterised by Peter's stubborn defence of the integrity of Peter Lehmann Wines against unwelcome and, in his view, hostile advances from outside parties.
It's such a privilege to taste wine in the vineyard it was grown in - Colin Sheppard from Flaxman Wines showing us through his Eden Valley vineyard during the Barossa Grounds tour. #BarossaDirt #Barossa #wine #winemaker #BarossaGrounds #EdenValley #SouthAustralia #WineCountry #vineyard
Why after 29 years with Penfolds - 16 as Chief Winemaker - responsible for Australia's most famous wine - would John Duval seek change? The answer is simply the opportunity to develop his own family wine business and to make his own wines, in a region which has the oldest Shiraz, Mourvedre and Cabernet wines in the world.
Can't say no when winemaker Shavaughan from @saltramwines offers you a 1951 Sherry - and no it wasn't from my birth year - but it was amazing! #Barossa #BarossaWine #BarossaDirt #wine #sherry #saltram #fino #vino #vinhos #winewednesday #vintage
