Pairing wine with cheese happens so naturally that you've probably found yourself pouring a glass, then reaching for a cheese knife, without even thinking — and you've likely done so more than once. This dynamic duo is also a festival favourite, because event organisers know the same truth as the rest of us: this combo just never gets old.
The latest excuse to head out of the house, sip vino and tuck into slivers of dairy: The Sound Garden's wine and cheese festival. Given the venue, this event also adds live music to the mix, all from 12pm on Sunday, September 12.
Tambourine Cheese and Little White Goat will be among the stalls serving up cheese, cheese and more cheese — including freeze-dried goat feta — while wineries on drinks duty include Craggy Range, Mountadam, Yangarra, AIX and Taittinger Champagne.
Entry is free and, from there, you can plan your eating and drinking however you like. A single wine token will cost you $10, or you can get five for $50 — or opt for cheese and vino bundles from $55–65. Tambourine Cheese is also hosting a masterclass, if you'd like to learn something amid the fun.
