Meet our new Winemaker!

A great presentation at Josef Chromy Wines today, ed headed by General Manager Jeremy Dineen. The purpose was to gather growers contracted to Josef Chromy Wines, for sale including those who have their own labels.

The season was explained comparatively and advice provided as to what we needed to do to prepare for the 2016/17 season. A very good marketing presentation was given by Dr. Larry Lockshin. He is Professor of Wine Marketing and Head of the School of Marketing at the University of South Australia.

The Seminar was a great start to a new winemaker -client relationship, although Jeremy was well involved with Providence when he was working for Andrew Hood at Hood Wines in Cambridge.  The relationship is renewed!
