About Jemery Dineen and Josef Chromy Wines

Hand-picked by Josef to lead his namesake wine business, Chief Winemaker and General Manager Jeremy Dineen brings to the establishment extensive wine industry experience, having competed numerous vintages in Margaret River, McLaren Vale and Mitchelton in the Goulburn Valley. Born and bred in Tasmania, his intimate knowledge of Tasmanian viticulture and the complexities associated with contract winemaking was attained during 5 vintages at Hood Wines with as many as 38 vineyards under his care.

Josef Chromy Wines has a state-of-the-art winery at the base of the vineyard at Relbia, just 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.  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.
