Dates of existence
Dr Henry John Lindeman began growing vines and producing wines from 1843. Business progressed and in 1879 Dr Lindeman took into partnership three of his five sons, Charles, Arthur and Herbert, as H J Lindeman. Lindeman died in 1881 and the business was carried on by his three sons.
A private company, Lindeman Ltd, was incorporated in New South Wales in November 1906. In 1953 the company was converted to a public company. A new holding company Lindeman (Holdings) Limited was established in November 1959 to acquire the existing capital on the basis of two one pound shares for each one pound share held. In 1961 the holdings company made a successful offer for Leo Buring (Holdings) Ltd. Lindeman (Holdings) Limited was acquired by Philip Morris Australia Limited in 1971. In early 1990 Philip Morris and Lindemans Wine, including its subsidiaries, were acquired by the Penfolds Wine Group. Southcorp Limited acquired the Penfolds Wine Group, which included Lindemans, in 1990.
