Give Melburnians an occasion, and they'll show their love for cheese in all of its creamy, gooey, rare and stinky forms. Add some delicious wine, beer and cider to the table and you've got one heck of an afternoon. Setting up shop at the magnificent Werribee Mansion once again, Fromage a Trois Cheese Festival is back to pair the former with the latter.
Here, showcasing Australian artisan cheesemakers is on the agenda — and they'll be displaying their tasty wares for you to sample and inevitably take home by the wheel-load. For those after a filling array of dairy goodness, you'll want to head to the 'Build Your Own Picnic' pavilion — where you can stock up on wine, beer, cider, spirits and, of course, many, many cheeses.
And if you're particularly interested in the process behind the practice, there'll be demonstrations and meet-the-maker sessions, so you can stock up on tips for your own cheesemaking adventures.
Fromage a Trois Cheese Festival takes place on Sunday, March 22, with early bird tickets currently available for $33 (plus booking fee). As well as entry and plenty of samples, attendees will receive their own festival glass to keep.
Fromage a Trois will run from 11am–6pm.
