The winery "Peter Lehmann Wines" is located in Tanunda in the Barossa Valley in South Australia. The Australian winemaker Peter Lehmann (1930-2013) worked for the Yalumba Winery for over ten years and was appointed Chief Winemaker of the Saltram Winery from the early 1960s. In 1978, he and his wife Margaret founded the Masterton Barossa Vignerons Winery. In 1986, the winery was renamed Peter Lehmann Wines and was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange as a public company in 1993. Peter Lehmann already enjoyed a legendary reputation for his wines during his lifetime, was called "Baron of Barossa Valley" and received the Order of Australia from Queen Elizabeth II. In the middle of the 1990s the oldest son Doug took over the business. In 2003 the estate was bought by the Hess Family Estates of the Swiss Donald M. Hess, but the management remained in the family with Doug Lehmann.
