Josef Chromy

Josef Chromy is a man of resilience and commitment, and profoundly shaped the Tasmanian food and wine landscape. While his journey began with ventures into renowned wineries such as Rochecombe (now Bay of Fires), Jansz, Heemskerk, and Tamar Ridge, it’s at his own estate where Joe’s passion for Tasmania truly blossoms today.

Though Joe’s remarkable journey commenced as a 19-year-old fleeing war-ravaged Czechoslovakia, his legacy is deeply rooted in the Tasmanian soil. Having braved adversities and redefined success with his venture, Blue Ribbon Meat Products, Joe ventured into the wine industry, and launched Josef Chromy Wines in 2007, as a testament to his unwavering dedication to the Tasmanian land and its people.

In just four years, the estate garnered unparalleled accolades, securing 14 trophies and 170 medals. This meteoric success is not just about awards; it symbolises the estate’s devotion to producing wines that mirror the richness of Tasmania.

Today, Josef Chromy Wines is more than a winery. It’s a celebration of the commitment Joe had to the region, showcasing the finest food and wine that Tasmania offers. The 61 hectare vineyard, set in the cool climes of the Tamar Valley, yields both sparkling and table wines of unmatched quality, reflecting a true sense of place. Alongside the wines, the estate offers a culinary journey, ensuring an authentic and memorable Tasmanian food and wine experience.

As we continue our evolution of Josef Chromy Wines, it’s essential to recognise the estate’s core – an unwavering loyalty to Tasmania. Joe’s values, driven by love and allegiance to his adopted homeland, are still echoed in every glass of wine and every dish served at the estate today.


WHITE WINE – Sauvignon Blanc by Josef Chromy


Flavours of lemongrass, fresh herbs and elegant passionfruit notes, supported by crunchy acidity, providing a fresh clean finish.

Colour: Pale lemon-green

Aroma: Intense typical varietal aromas of citrus and kiwi fruit, gooseberry, fresh cut grass and green capsicum. Herbal notes of fennel, dill and crunchy celery sticks add complexity and freshness.

Palate:The wine is dry, mineral driven and has a chalky texture. It is filled with citrus fruit flavours like pomelo, fresh lemon juice and lime zest; as well as white peach and fennel flavours. The elevated acidity delivers a clean zesty finish.

Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Tamar Valley and Coal River Valley

Winemaking: Sauvignon Blanc grapes were picked at optimal ripeness in early April. The grapes were promptly pressed under dry ice cover, and the free run juice separated and clarified to maximise the wine’s aromatic potential. The cool fermentation lasted approximately two weeks and was monitored daily. Clear wine was racked from its lees and left to mature in tank for several months prior to bottling.

Cellaring: 3 years

Serving: Salads packed with herbs and greens like Tabbouleh, “Moules Marinieres”, spring vegetable risotto or goat cheese.
