Josef Chromy Wines

Tasmania | Northern Tasmania

Our Review

Josef Chromy escaped from Czechoslovakia in 1950, arriving in Tasmania ‘with nothing but hope and ambition’. He went on to own or develop such well-known Tasmanian wine brands as Rochecombe (now Bay of Fires), Jansz, Heemskerk and Tamar Ridge. In ‘07, aged 76, Josef launched Josef Chromy Wines. The foundation of the business is the Old Stornoway vineyard, with 60ha of mature vines. Talented and hard-working winemaker Jeremy Dineen handed over the reins to his capable offsider Ockie Myburgh in January ‘21. In April ’22, the brand was acquired by Paragon Wine Estates, which is part of the Woolworths-owned Endeavour Group. -JAMES HALLIDAY
