Our Guide to the Relbia Wine Region

If you’ve been dreaming of some R&R, a leisurely tour of the Relbia wine region is just the ticket. Relbia is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a long overdue catch up with good friends. Visit the amazing wineries and relax at their lovely cellar doors. Enjoy the scenic views, taste the region’s award-winning wines, and indulge in some tasty eats.

Relbia forms part of the famed Tamar Valley Wine Route and is just a short drive south from Launceston. We’ve put together some tips to help you plan your visit.

1. Josef Chromy Wines

Find the Josef Chromy Cellar Door Cafe and Winery in the estate’s original 1880s homestead, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Taste their fine cool climate wines, treat yourself to some fresh Tassie produce, and take in the scenic vineyard and lake views. Grab a fresh hamper from the delicatessen and dine alfresco in the landscaped grounds. Wine varieties include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, a vintage sparkling and Botrytis Riesling. The cellar door is open daily from 10am to 5pm.

For the last few years, Josef Chromy Wines have hosted the ‘Effervescence Tasmania’ sparkling wine festival. There’s no word on this year’s event yet, but it’s usually on in November, so keep an ear out.
