Winery & Vintage Info

Josef Chromy OAM has been instrumental in the development of the Tasmanian food and wine industry, having owned and developed some of Tasmania’s leading wineries including Rochecombe (now Bay of Fires), Jansz, Heemskerk and Tamar Ridge.

At 76, when most people would be thinking about easing up, Joe launched Josef Chromy Wines in December 2007. In just over 4 years, Josef Chromy Wines made an impressive impact on the Australian wine industry. In a very short period, Josef Chromy Wines amassed 14 trophies and 170 medals, making it one of the most successful launches in the history of the Tasmanian Wine Industry.

Joe acknowledges Tasmania as the regional hero in this development. Josef Chromy Wines is the culmination of Joe’s experience in the Tamar Valley. The unique 60 ha vineyard site and location deliver both exquisite table and sparkling wines, and provides one of the most memorable food and wine experiences in Tasmania.

Pinot Gris grapes from blocks 6,8 and 10 of our Relbia vineyard were picked at optimal ripeness in late March 2023. Gentle whole bunch pressing was carried out at the winery, with the free run portion fermenting at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to retain a delicate aromatic profile, whereas the pressings were placed in older oak barrels for fermentation and maturation on lees to build texture and body. In early June 2023 the two components were combined to create the final blend. Gentle fining, stabilisation and clarification processes followed, and the wine was bottled in late August 2023.
