The definitive guide to Australian Wines
David Franz (Lehmann) is one of Margaret and Peter Lehmann's sons, and took a very circuitous path around the world before establishing his eponymous winery. Wife Nicki accompanied him on his odyssey and they, together with three children, two dogs, a mess of chickens and a surly shed cat, all happily live together in their house and winery. The utterly unique labels stem from (incomplete) university studies in graphic design; his degree in hospitality business management is less relevant, for visits to the winery, aka the shed, are strictly by appointment only. An extended family of five share the work in the vineyard and the shed. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong and China.
