The story of Stonewell Shiraz began in 1987 when Peter Lehmann decided to make a special Shiraz - a wine of immense intensity and muscularity that would demand time in the barrel and bottle before release. The wine was named ‘Stonewell’ after the district that he believed best showed the characters admired most in Barossa Shiraz.

Often referred to as the man who saved the Barossa Valley, Peter Lehmann’s reputation is legendary throughout the region and Australian winemaking history. Today, Peter Lehmann Wines is one of the most established family owned wineries in the region.

The late 1970s were a difficult time for the wine community in Barossa, as the region was hit by a large surplus of grapes. The companies refused to buy grapes and honor contracts, and Peter Lehmann knew it would destroy the livelihood of 140 family farmers.

In a bold attempt to support his community of producers, Peter took out a loan, set up the equipment and built a small winery to process their grapes. The winery was called Masterson of the Barossa, in honor of the famous player, Skye Masterson of the musical Guys and Dolls.

The wine from the first vintage in 1980 was called "The Futures" in homage to Peter's commitment to pay producers once he sold the wine. This arrangement was sealed with a handshake and Peter's word was his guarantee. True to his promise, when the Money started pouring in, Peter made a point of paying his producers first.

Led by Peter, the Barossa community came together during difficult times, not only to make good wines, but to preserve the future of the land and Barossa region. Today, these longstanding relationships with the same community of family producers give wine producers Peter Lehmann unparalleled access to the best grapes across Barossa.
