      Great venue, probably the worse cellar door ever experienced.
      Arrived for a booked and paid for wine tasting. Had to wait in bus zone until chained off drive way opened after 10. Booking was for 10.15. I had researched the wines not the reviews of the cellar door and took my colleague, a Spanish wine documentary series maker to taste two "flights". Greeted by a surprised young hostess who couldn't find our booking. Had to tell her what was booked etc. We sat ourselves down as we're not shown a table. We sat by a windows with a fantastic view. We were quickly told to move as that table was booked. With no one else having a tasting, we were sat at a table facing a wall. 10 wines arrived, hostess read the notes that were printed in front of us. Asked for a spittoon, never arrived. Had to break into her glass polishing to remind her, then given a paper cup. Wine, the reason we came for was quite good, the service however was appalling. Never was spoken to again. As we were leaving, again, nothing. Didn't feel like buying anything after this impersonal service. Oh, and after 40 minutes no one else arrived, and those seats with the views, yes, remained unused.

      Winery With A View
      Left Launceston for our next destination and stopped here on the way through. One of the more beautifully presented wineries I've visited in Australia. Didn't have a booking but as we were first there the friendly and helpful staff gladly fitted us in. The tasting experience was quite good with some different and lovely wines. We bought several bottles here but they don't discount or waive the tasting fee 🤔. Didn't have time for lunch but the restaurant looked nice. Wasn't overly interested with their menu thought. However if you like your wine and food then definitely check it out.

      A beautiful winery and worth a visit!
      What a lovely wine tasting experience! We hadn’t planned to go here on this day but our plans changed so we tried to book online but couldn’t as you need to book online 24 hours in advance. We phoned them and they were happy for us to go. Staff were friendly and so knowledgeable about their wines. We already knew we loved their whites but was great to try them all. Next time we will book for lunch as the aromas coming from the kitchen were amazing!

      Amazing cellar door experience
      Visited the cellar door with friends in the hope we could do a tasting. Bea was very helpful and accommodated us - amazing wines accompanied by lots of interesting information. Very pleasant.

      Great view, service and wine
      Of all the things we've done on our trip, this was one of the best. Fantastic lovely ladies serving, three options for the wine flights, all presented with a stunning view and set up. Thank you team, we loved talking to you and out time here.

      Beautiful setting
      Visited 15th May for wine tasting after visiting several other wineries. This was by far the best. The lady who presented the wine tasting was well rehearsed and very informative she was great. Didn't taste a wine I did'nt like.

      We tasted 8 different wines and loved the Pinot Gris. We then wandered around the dappled sunlit garden and lawns

      Great location with impressive wine and food
      Four of us did a wine tasting and then followed this by a sumptuous lunch in the restaurant. For the wine tasting we sat at a table on the veranda overlooking the lake and vineyard and very much enjoyed the experience. Very nice wines presented by knowledgeable and very friendly staff. For lunch in the restaurant, we selected the fish and the beef rib meals and found them very well presented and most enjoyable. Our waiting staff were all very friendly and most helpful. We'll certainly be back.

      Beautiful venue, disappointing experience
      The winery is stunning, gorgeous gardens. Arrived without a booking as it was unavailable on line to be told they require 24 hours notice for a tasting but they had some available at $15 pp. but at set times only. Decided to try the restuarant but with just one suitable meal on the menu for our diet we opted for a platter. After being told that they could accommodate our dietary needs initially we were then told no we had to pay extra to add food they wouldn’t substitute food. We found this just extraordinary and out of step with a quality experience. We chose the basic of the 2 standard options and a glass of wine ($15 per 150ml) but our visit was tarnished by a lack of customer care. It very much felt like a business model that was profit driven well over customer experience. Very disappointing

      Beautiful property
      Josef Chromy is a beautiful winery and very well run. We booked for a wine tasting. Bookings are essential at the moment. You get a choice of three flights of four glasses of wine for $15. We also ordered a cheese platter from the bistro at $32 and it was possibly the best cheese platter I’ve had. Staff were delightful as was the wine!

      Yummy wine tasting in a beautiful setting
      My husband & I booked in for the $30 wine and cheese platter. We were set up outside in the beautiful surroundings over looking the vineyard. My husband had a selection of the reds and I enjoyed the whites. They were so yummy! We bought the Pinot Gris which they are known for. So good!! We took our 4 small children with us who loved spending time in the gardens. They were welcome to be there. Was a lovely morning out and I highly recommend!

      Magnificent Pinot, delightful location
      Friendly, knowledgeable staff and very nice wines. A delightful tasting experience in such a great location. I particularly recommend their Pinot Gri, Cab Sav and magnificent Pinot Noir. No shy contenders here. Thank you

      "Anniversary Lunch at Josef Chromy Winery"
      Wow! What a great way to spend our Anniversary. This winery is the best we have ever been to. Starting with the stunning views over the vineyard and lake , to the beautiful manicured gardens. We arrived early so we decided to visit the cellar door for tastings where we were greeted by Darion who was excellent and gave us very imformative information on the quality wines we sampled. We then continued into the restaurant for lunch. The interior is breathtaking with beautiful decor and great views over the lake and vineyard. Our main meals and deserts were of a very high standard and the customer service was outstanding. Thank you Josef Chromy, you made our Anniversary a day to remember.

    We had the opportunity to taste a few wines today and they certainly did not disappoint! Julia was a fabulous host and explained our wines perfectly. Julia was there when required and discreetly slipped way and left us to our tasting. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful experience. Bea a lovely Polish lady with a passion for wine was our guide and the tour of the vineyard was interesting. The wines offered for the tasting were superb but the highlight was the lunch. The food was divine. It's as good as it gets. Splendid .

    The asparagus rissoto was truly exquisite, silky texture with tender spears however the fish of the day, blue eye trevalla, was utterly destroyed by the use of chilli powder in the dusting with no mention in the menu. We had told the excellent and attentive wait staff that we has a garlic and chilli allergy so this is pretty much inexcusable. Lovely venue, great matching wines but one serious let down.

    Our experience was wonderful. Our beautiful Japanese hostess was very knowledgeable & the food was magnificent. The price for the wine tasting was too expensive for what you get ($350 inc. two course lunch) Next time we would have 3 courses & two nice bottles of wine for the same price. In saying that it was a memorable experience & if we lived in Launceston we would dine there every week.A must for all visitors & locals.

    Had a 2 course lunch and wines as well as a tasting experience as part of a tour package. The winery is stunning and we started with a tasting flight very capably conducted by Julie who was very friendly and knowledgeable. Then to the restaurant for a delicious 2 course meal accompanied by a couple of matching wines. Can’t speak more highly of the food, service and ambience of the facility. Highly recommended.

    Pre-bookings are strongly recommended with several different wine flights of four wines each available at $15-00 each.

    We were seated at benches on stools though I believe we could have sat outside if we had requested to do so.

    We did the Classics tasting flight (NV Tasmanian Cuvee, Brut Finesse 2018 sparkling, 2022 Pinot Gris and 2020 Pinot Noir) and the Reds tasting flight (2021 Pepik Pinot Noir, 2021 Rose (normally Pinot Noir but his was substituted), 2021 Cabernet Merlot and NV Ruby Pinot). There was a third tasting flight "Aromatics" available that included two different Reislings, a Pinot Gris and a Rose.

    Preferred the sparkling and Pinot Noirs, though obviously personal taste.

    Staff were helpful and friendly although the associated tasting notes with each flight were very useful.

    Unfortunately though you could not offset the cost of the tasting against purchases of wine, which is increasingly becoming the case.

    We stayed for lunch and would recommend dining here.

    The wine tasting is very well done. They produce some very good wines and the location for both the wine tasting and the lunch is very attractive.
    The lunch is served in their multi capable restaurant which is a delight to visit and as a function capable venue beautifully set out and stylish.
    The lunch is just superb. They have a very good kitchen, staffed with very accomplished cooks and of course a very talented Head Chef.
    The food choices were so interesting and so flavourful.
    The service was excellent. We really enjoyed our visit here and the experience was just so enjoyable. Highly recommend a visit here.

    Great winery tour with excellent wine tasting and topped off with a fabulous lunch. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the winery and the wines we tasted. The lunch was absolutely delicious. If you don't have time for the tour at least go to the restaurant. We could not recommend this more highly.
