“Best cheese I have ever had!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The only reason my partner and I stopped by here because we heard they sold cooler bag's and needed one for our melting chocolates we just got up from the road!

We had already been to cheese world that day and was disappointed.. by there lack of selection and poor service.

Were surprised to find not only were the staff very friendly they have a large selection of great tasting cheeses to try!

We ended leaving with a couple blocks of cheese and wishing we could have taken more!

I would high recommend stopping by here if you love cheese! you won't be disappointed!

“Would like to buy some more”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Didn't get to taste this cheese until the Cheese Place outside Warrnanbool but after having a sample of the blue cheese I bought it and we enjoyed it later with some red wine and potato crackers. Delightful

“Outstanding cheese / Fantastic place to visit”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

My wife & I visited on Saturday July 21. We were lucky enough to arrive during the feeding of the calves (around 4pm). Spent some time watching them feed & met the male owner, who was very friendly & helpful.

Went round to the tasting & sales area. Have to say we were both blown away by the outstanding service. We've visited cheese places in the Barossa & they were very stingy with tasting servings. Not here - got to try about 8 different cheeses & each tasting was large enough to actually taste it!!

Needless to say we bought quite a bit - the brie was so creamy, the blue vein bitey yet delicious, the smoked cheese was wonderful, & my wife loved the feta.

We are already planning our return trip!! So glad to have found a cheesemaker within 2 hours of our home.
