David Franz

Iconoclastic. Irreverent. Masterful. Truly Barossa
***** A James Halliday 5 Star Winery

Established in 1998 by David Franz (Lehmann) son of the legendary Barossan icon Peter, this dynamic winery produces a stellar line-up of innovative wines made in small batches with utter dedication to stunning parcels of Barossa fruit.

David is an artisan winemaker in the truest sense making hand-crafted wines from vine to bottle, emblazoned with labels he and his wife Nicky designed themselves, and often wrapped in printed silk sheets.
The estate boasts 32ha of vines including the old famed familial plots in Stelzer and Stonewell Hill, and David is fiercely committed to highlighting and preserving ancient plots of vines throughout the region and his strong network of growers and owners.
