Our Cellar Door

In a blend of historic and contemporary architecture, the Peter Lehmann Wines cellar door welcomes guests to our stunning red gum bar to experience some of Australia’s most awarded wines. 

Our cellar door is situated along Para Road in Tanunda, Barossa on the banks of the Para River. The old stone building and veranda are a lovely setting to enjoy a wine tasting, but it’s the surrounding lawns and gardens that make the Peter Lehmann Wines really special.

The heart of Cellar Door is the old stone winery building dating back to the 1880s. The building has been extensively renovated and extended, with old and new blended seamlessly by stonework, creating a modern hospitality centre within a living history of Barossa winemaking.

With manicured gardens surrounding the historic stone building housing Cellar Door, Peter Lehmann Wines is regarded as one of the Barossa’s most picturesque destinations.

On a sunny day the picnic tables scattered under the swaying red gum trees are the perfect place to relax and enjoy a bottle of wine with friends and loved ones. Sanctuary to our family of kookaburras, magpies, rosellas and the odd kangaroo.

Open seven days a week, Peter Lehmann Wines Cellar Door offers tastings of more than 40 wines, guided by knowledgeable hosts who share Peter Lehmann’s love of hospitality.

The Weighbridge

The Weighbridge is where every Peter Lehmann wine starts its life. Peter Lehmann spent most of the first vintage at the Weighbridge, keeping an eye on the incoming fruit and keeping up the relationships with the growers, as he did for every vintage until he retired in 2002 - if the old marble walls of the Weighbridge could talk, they would tell a compelling version of Barossa history. The Weighbridge tradition continues today.

The Architecture

The Hoffmann Cellar is one of the original Barossan wineries, built in the 1880’s. Carved into the hill to allow the natural course of gravity to influence the winemaking process, the small winery remains with its beautiful archway the centrepiece of our Cellar Door.

The Gardens

Vast and peaceful, our gardens run alongside the Para River and are lush the year round.
