The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Historically, Tasmania can lay claim to being the founder of both the Victorian and South Australian wine industries as William Henty sailed from Launceston to Portland (in Victoria) in 1834 and planted grape cuttings there. Though not conclusively proven, it's believed that John Hack planted vines in South Australia in 1837, closely followed in 1838 by John Reynell.
Warmer vintages (possibly attributable to global warming) has had positive effects on region's industry, allowing grapes in recent vintages to achieve full phenolic ripeness, making for vibrant wines that have been widely accepted as world class.
The Tamar Valley, near the city of Launceston, is both Tasmania’s oldest wine-growing region and largest viticultural area. It sits on the west bank of the Tamar River, which flows from Launceston to Bass Strait. Soil here is gravelly basalt on a clay and limestone base. The area has a reputation for premium cool-climate wines, but the climate is also warm enough to ripen Cabernet Sauvignon. Among the area’s popular varieties are Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir. The area has also become famed for exceptional sparkling wines, with winemakers producing classic white sparkling wines from a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay, all of which thrive on the island.

About the brand Josef Chromy
Josef Chromy’s winemaking style is founded on producing wines that show a true ‘sense of place’ and celebrate the individual characteristics of each unique vintage. To ensure the integrity and delicate characteristics of the fruit, the grapes are received and vinified in Tasmania’s most advanced winery with emphasis on the wine being an expression of its terroir.
The use of state-of-the-art technology for traditional winemaking techniques enables a gentle, minimal intervention approach which allows the subtle and delicate flavours of our cool climate vineyard to be expressed to their full potential.
Josef Chromy Wines’ state-of-the-art winery at the base of the vineyard at Relbia, just 10 minutes South of Launceston. The modern and minimalist exterior provides a home for some of the best winemaking equipment available. Fruit reception begins with a vibrating hopper that gently shakes the grapes into the destemmer, which has a smooth plastic cage to prevent damage to the delicate berries. The grapes are pumped gently into the press through a peristaltic pump, using the same technology that transfers live fish or pumps blood during heart bypass surgery.
