The Cheese Experience

For the cheese experience we head to The Cheese Barrel in the Swan Valley where we meet Tanya Barretto – ‘The Cheese Maker’. Tanya will show you how to make cheese from scratch and then guide you in the process as you make your own cheese.

Once you have made your cheese you are then tasked with creating something with that cheese in a fun and easy cook off. We then pair your creation with other treats for you to enjoy for lunch, washed down with a glass of wine, tea, coffee or soft drink.

The Wine Experience

After lunch you will be driven to the award winning ‘Talijancich Wines’ where James and Hilda Talijancich will welcome you to their boutique winery in the Swan Valley.

Wine maker James Talijancich will then lead you on a wine journey from their vineyard, through to the production plant, the barrel room and finally to their cellar door.

Seated at a long table in the Talijancich cellar door you will learn all about the history of this third generation wine making business and get to taste a variety of their wines. James or Hilda will talk you through each of the wines and explain their characteristics in a straight forward and easy to understand way.
