Vineyard Wedding Venue Launceston
Situated in the peaceful countryside of Relbia, Tasmania, Josef Chromy Wines is the ultimate location for a contemporary vineyard wedding ceremony and reception. Whilst you will feel a world away stepping into the lush gardens that surround the renovated 1880’s homestead, this award winning vineyard and restaurant is only minutes away from central Launceston and the Launceston Airport. It has quickly become a Tasmanian icon in itself, with the incredible story of it’s founder Josef Chromy, alongside internationally recognised wines from this area of Northern Tasmania.
The Josef Chromy Wines experience is like no other. The careful thoughtfulness of design, at all times highlighting the natural beauty of the surroundings, is evident in every element of the property. Cohesiveness between your first visit to the vineyard, right through to your dedicated Function and Event Manager that is present on the day of your wedding, will make you feel completely at home within the wedding venue.
Imagine a peaceful space with a magnificent lake, framed by scenery housing 61 hectares of vines and fields. Landscaped gardens highlight established trees and hedges, all of which are available as a setting for your wedding ceremony. As well as the stunning garden areas, there’s a recently built Wedding Lakeside Pavilion set a moment’s walk from the main reception area, overlooking the lake and rolling landscape.
Following the ceremony, guests can relax with pre dinner drinks and canapés on the lawn under a canopy of trees, with the colours of the sprawling vineyard and gardens constantly changing with the seasons.
The host of spaces within Josef Chromy are a photographers’ dream and provide idyllic options for wedding party photos around the grounds. All are within easy strolling distance of the chosen ceremony area, and the setting allows for complete privacy for for you and your guests.

With floor to ceiling glass doors the view to the lake and gardens make for a truly unique and special setting for your wedding any time of the year.
The venue can be decorated in a number of ways allowing it to be chameleon of styles; from classically elegant weddings, through to rustic and vintage themes. Existing furnishings available with the venue are stunning in themselves, with modern solid dark timber tables and high backed uber-comfortable leather chairs.
The wedding menu is overseen by Executive Chef Matt Adams who, with his expert team, hold a passion for high quality local produce bursting with seasonal ingredients.
