Cheesemaker for a Day

We had a ball hosting another cheese making workshop in November 2014, bigger and better than the first.

Our expert in residence was Kate Harbison who helps out in cellar door. Kate brought along her hand-made Camembert cheeses and explained how she had made them. Then we proceeded to make our own Fetta in a really simple process. Some of the Fetta was concentrated on the day and turned into Haloumi which was later fried as part of the lunch menu.

Our delicious lunch spread included spinach and cheese flaky pastry pie, locally smoked salmon from Lyndoch Butcher on Lebanese bread with capers lemon juice and lettuce.  Of course we left room for dessert – hazelnut meringue with apricot conserve and cream.

Not forgetting the Liebich wines served during the day to complete this unique food and wine experience.

Who would be keen to attend if we held another one next year?

Cheese Making Workshop

We love cheese with our wines and have always been curious to find out how to make our own. It was exciting to host our very first cheese making workshop on Saturday 3 May 2014.

Our expert in residence was Kate Harbison who helps out in cellar door.  Kate is also a kitchen supervisor for a school program supported  by the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation. She led us through a 3 hour hands-on workshop that was highly entertaining and educational.

First we tucked into a cheese platter and had a taste of Kate’s 5 week old camembert and her freshly harvested 2014 olive oil.

After a quick lesson in hygiene, Kate led us through preparing two batches of milk; one for ricotta and one for feta. While we waited for the cheeses to set and drain at various stages, all participants had a hand in preparing a lunch feast. The ricotta was part of our lunch menu in Kate’s version of Indian dish Palak Paneer and the feta was covered in brine to take home.

It was so much fun that we will host another one in Spring 2014.

Personalised Wine Tastings

Requests have been flowing in to host wine clubs and local sporting clubs for specialised private tastings in the barrel shed. The rare aged fortifieds are star attractions! Ron really enjoys the chance to talk to consumers and show off his range of wines. He is happy to travel to where you are, should you wish to hold a tasting at work, a special function or a fundraiser event. In May we hosted a group of 30 people for an informal fortified workshop. Another special tasting is booked in August when we will travel to Western Victoria to provide a taste of Liebichwein for the residents of the Tabor area.
