Maybe it’s the landscape, or simply the Pinot Noir, but there’s something intrinsically magical and charming about Josef Chromy Winery. Set 10 minutes outside of Launceston on Tasmania’s northern coast, the winery itself is housed inside an estate from 1880, and views stretch out towards the rolling hills and slopes that are covered in vines. Cozy up to the log fire that’s always burning inside, and sample the Pinot and Chardonnay that the winery is famously known for. The vineyard’s founder, Josef Chromy, is legendary in the food and wine industry throughout Australia and beyond, and for those who know him, it’s little surprise that the restaurant and winery have attracted the attention of Australia’s top critics who all offer rave reviews. As the Tamar Valley’s most notable vineyard, Josef Chromy offers visitors a range of exceptional culinary experiences, from basic tastings at the cellar door to tours pairing wine and chocolate. For a full experience at the winery and restaurant, join a tour that goes “behind the label” for a glimpse of the winemaking process, which is then followed up by an exquisite meal that’s perfectly paired with the wine.
Josef Chromy Winery is located 4 minutes south of the town of Relbia and 10 minutes south of Launceston.
