History & Geography
Josef Chromy OAM fled his war-torn Czech village in 1950 as a penniless 19-year-old after eleven years of Nazi and Soviet occupation. He escaped across borders guarded by minefields, dogs and soldiers, suffering five months of privation before immigrating to Australia. Over the next 40 years, he used his skills as a Master Butcher and Smallgoods Maker to build his business, Blue Ribbon Meat Products, into one of Tasmania’s leading brands. Josef has been instrumental in the development of the Tasmanian food and wine industry, having owned and developed some of Tasmania’s leading wineries. At 76, when most people would be thinking about easing up, he launched Josef Chromy Wines in December 2007. In just over 4 years, Josef Chromy Wines amassed 14 trophies and 170 medals, making it one of the most successful launches in the history of the Tasmanian wine industry.
