Lunch at the Weighbridge
"The Weighbridge is a special part of the history of Peter Lehmann Wines. It is the tiny brick building which sits in the middle of the thoroughfare between the winery and the road - half given over to the weighing of the grapes brought in by the growers and the other an area for entertaining or a well earned rest. It was here that Peter used to meet with his growers in the early days - consolidating their relationship and have a good old natter. Aileen - Peter Lehmann's chefWhen we visited, the lovely Aileen (cook/gardner extraordinaire at Lehmann) laid on a hearty lunch of homemade bread and Barossa fare (delicious smoked meats, cheeses and pickles amongst other things) for us and the winemakers eager for much needed sustenance. The tricky nature of the vintage meant it was a fleeting visit but nonetheless an insight in to busy vintage life as well as taking part in an important element of the Lehmann heritage - plus we witnessed a timely delivery of some very fragrant Shiraz, perhaps even some of Stonewell 2011??
