"Winemaking isn’t a matter of life or death – it’s much more important than that!" Leo Buring 1876 - 1961. Among the many personalities that have shape the Australian wine industry over the past 150 years one name stands pre-eminent – Leo Buring. Hermann Paul Leopold Buring was born in South Australia on the 7th October 1876, the son of German immigrants. He was a highly skilled winemaker and is often described as "Australia's Ambassador for Wine" because he was one of the first to export Australian wine to many countries as far back as the early 1900’s. In 1896, Leo was Dux of the Oenology course at Roseworthy Agricultural College. He then gained practical experience in Europe before settling back in Australia at Minchinbury in 1902. Four years later, his wines earned 6 gold medals at The Brewers and Wine Exhibition in London. Leo Buring finally achieved his dream at the age of 68 when he bought the Orange Grove Winery at Tanunda, in the Barossa Valley, which he re-named, "Chateau Leonay". Read more »
