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.

About our events: Denver Wine Meetup/UncorkedDenver.com events are a unique opportunity to socialize with other young/mid professionals and make new friends over at a wine and food pairing, with select wines paired with appetizers, sometimes with the winemaker visiting.
Our events differ from the many “happy hours” in a bar groups around Denver and high priced wine organizations, distributor/festival type events as the events are a wine social with the opportunity to meet a winemaker or wine manager and focus on learning about a winery and/or a varietal. Our events provide members a unique wine and culinary pairing event with the aspect of a social mixer at an affordable price. Although our events are not “singles” events, we try to keep an even split of males, females and couples at our events.
Please note: Our party area will be private (and blocked from the public) and we will turn away folks who do not have a ticket as we must provide the headcount to the chef and winemaker. This event will be limited to 100 attendees due to space
