Peter Lehmann Wines

A fifth generation Barossan, Peter Lehmann first established the Barossa winery that bears his name in 1979. It was a brave decision made to support the local grape grower families whom were facing great financial hardship during a difficult time in the region.

Today, Peter Lehmann Wines is renowned as one of Australia’s most highly regarded wineries and the wines are a celebration of the Barossa community and our longstanding relationships with grape-growers across the region.

With unrivalled access to the Barossa’s finest fruit, Peter Lehmann Wines offers a range of premium wines that express the unique and distinctive characteristics of the Barossa.
