Max & Me is an Eden Valley winery making Shiraz, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and olive oil from Boongarrie Estate in the Central-East of the Barossa Ranges near the town of Eden Valley. Max & Me wines and olive oil are hand-made by the husband and wife partnership of Phil & Sarah Lehmann.
We invite you to experience the fragrant beauty of Max & Me Eden Valley Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet from Barossa’s high country with skilfully-crafted wines, honest of the region, site, variety and vintage.
Our winemaking decisions draw upon Phil’s formative years growing up around Peter Lehmann Wines in the Barossa Valley, then further shaped by overseas winemaking experience in the Napa Valley, Burgundy and Stellenbosch. Style and technique were then further honed during winemaking stretches at Yalumba, Peter Lehmann Wines, Teusner, Parker, Vickery and Mountadam. Sarah is particularly instrumental in the ‘tread-softly’ aspects of the land management, and in focussing Max & Me’s wine styles for fragrance and grace rather than overt power and bombast.
“The selection of Eden Valley as home reflects our shared love for the beautiful, rugged and soulful vista, and especially the striking and poignant shiraz, cab and blends and riesling the region regularly achieves. “We want to move carefully with everything we make, and not add anything unneccessary to our wines. All of our reds, our ’20 & ’21 Riesling and our olive oil are vegan friendly”.
