Peter Lehmann established the Tanunda-based winery that bears his name in 1979, creating a wine brand that today signifies quality Barossa winemaking. The winery is 5 star winery with many 90+ rated wines by the various rating companies.
Each vintage, over 140 grape growers supply Peter Lehmann Wines with quality fruit from over 700 hand-tended vineyards located throughout the Barossa
The collection includes all significant varieties and wine styles, ranging from the flagship Stonewell Shiraz to wines crafted for every day enjoyment. Each one backed by one of the great stories of Australian winemaking.
Ian Hongell is one of Australia’s most talented next-generation winemakers and wine judges.
Growing up a stone’s throw from the Peter Lehmann winery, his father worked with Peter Lehmann at Saltram, and over the years, winemaking became part of Ian’s DNA.
His first attempt at winemaking (with stolen grapes and an ice cream bucket at the age of seven) was augmented by a winemaking degree and vintages in California, France and Germany; and a winemaking position at Penfolds.
His talent was recognized with the offer to manage one of the largest winemaking operations in New South Wales, which he did for five years. In 1998, Ian headed home to Barossa to take up a position in the Peter Lehmann winery, under the mentorship of Chief Winemaker Andrew Wigan.
Ian is also part Lehmann’s family of growers, with a small low-cropping Shiraz vineyard that gives him “a personal seasonal barometer” to what is happening in the vineyards across the region. Ian Hongell bio PDF.
