The people of his home region call him Baron of the Barossa Valley. And for the wine magazine Decanter he is simply the living Australian wine legend We are talking about Peter Lehmann, son of a Lutheran pastor. His family has been living in this Australian region for five generations. But he was the first to enter the wine business. Under his care, the company continued to grow. As a result, 15,000 tonnes of grapes were processed annually, most of which came from independent winegrowers. Lehmann owned only 55 hectares of his own vineyards, including the 18-hectare Stonewell vineyard he bought in 1994. Today, the estate belongs to Casella Family Brands, Australia's largest family-owned wine producer.
