Wine Club Weekend 2019



...  to the 2019 Josef Chromy Wine Club Weekend - an opportunity to participate in exclusive events and unprecedented behind-the-scenes access.  

Gold and Silver Wine Club Members and their partners were invited to attend this intriguing weekend, which sold out in 2019. 

Program - Saturday 27 July

  • Begin with breakfast at your leisure. Try one of our recommendations, or head to the famous Launceston Harvest Market. 
  • We'll collect you from your accommodation (or the Market!) and head dockside to board the Tamar Odyssey for a 2.5 hour private cruise on the Tamar, tasting through our range of Sparkling Wines whilst we enjoy the views.
  • Next we amble down to bread + butter, for a lunch of sweet and savoury eats, before The Tasmanian Butter Co's Olivia Morrison shows us how to make cultured butter. You'll leave with a jar of your own self-made product, a portion of Tasmanian Sea Salt, and all the information that you need to make it again at home.
  • Onwards to Josef Chromy Wines, for a Riedel Sensory Workshop to explore just what difference it makes to use a glass specially crafted for a particular wine variety. Even better, the set of 4 Riedel varietal glasses are yours to keep.
  • Enjoy tasting through our red wine portfolio accompanied with grazing canapes in the Lakeside Pavilion and then we're off to the Launceston Night Market. Immerse yourself in the hubbub of the mid-winter night market, celebrating local food, beverages, producers and musicians. 

Program - Sunday 28 July

Sunday is made up of 4 different activities occurring at different times during the day so that you can experience everything!  

  • Remember that lovely cultured butter you crafted yesterday? Complete the picture and carve your own Tasmanian timber butter spreader from Tasmanian Hydrowood blanks under the guidance of artist Carol Russell.
  • Take a guided tour of the Josef Chromy Winery, sample wines-in-progress from the tank and barrel, and discover what happens behind the scenes. Learn about traditional method sparkling winemaking, practice your sabrage, dose your own Cuvee and create a sparkling wine to suit your taste.  
  • Enjoy a 2-course lunch and a glass of the Josef Chromy range in the Josef Chromy Wines Restaurant.  
  • Join Head Chef Nick Raitt in the Josef Chromy restaurant kitchen to pick up some of the secrets of a Hatted kitchen
