Josef Chromy joins Oatley Fine Wine Merchants

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 

Hot on the heels of Pikes, The Oatley Family are pleased to announce that Tasmania’s Josef Chromy Wines will also join their portfolio of family-owned wineries from 1st May, 2017.

They will be distributed nationally by Oatley Family Wine Merchants (OFWM): Australia’s fastest growing national distributor of Australian and International wines to the trade, specialising in the on-premise and independent retail sectors.

“We are delighted to include this premium northern-Tasmanian family-owned wine company to our portfolio” said OFWM Chairman Andrew (Sandy) Oatley today. “Renowned for its riesling, sparkling and pinot noir, Tasmania is definitely the epi-centre of ‘cool’ right now – both cool in climate and on-trend for wine lovers. Josef Chromy is without doubt one of the state’s best and sits well alongside our other Tasmanian offerings from Clover Hill and Derwent Estate.”

Located at Relbia, just South of Launceston, Northern Tasmania, Josef Chromy Wines was established in 2004 and has quickly built a reputation as one of the finest producers of Tasmanian Méthode Tradtionelle sparkling wines, elegant Pinot Noir and delicate white wines.

“We are excited to be joining one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing distribution businesses in the country, and particularly pleased that it is a family owned business with a genuine focus on wine” said Josef Chromy’s Chief Winemaker and General Manager, Jeremy Dineen. “We believe Oatley Fine Wine Merchants are a perfect fit for us because of their expertise, national footprint and dedication to providing high quality, family owned brands to the on-premise market.”

Josef Chromy and Pikes (announced last week) will be distributed by OFWM in Australia both direct and through broad range wholesalers. Orders may be placed via orders@oatleywines.com.au or calling 1800 OATLEY (628539).
