While working as a winemaker in Bordeaux, Victoria McClurg became so inspired by the nation's love for cheese and their tradition of cheese making, that she returned to Australia determined to produce regional cheese. Barossa Artisan Cheese is made at Angaston in the unique countryside of the Barossa Valley. Using fresh milk sourced daily from a local dairy, they hand make a range of styles including soft, white mould, washed rind, semi hard and fresh cheeses. This ultra-mini Camembert-style cheese has a mild mushroom aroma and a slightly firm, yet supple texture. A perfect size for one!
About Barossa Valley Cheese
The Barossa Valley Cheese Company is a labour of love for Victoria McClurg. First trained as a winemaker, Victoria spent a season making wine in Bordeaux, absorbing the region’s way of life and regard for food and wine. As she mused over a glass of wine, accompanied by an array of handmade cheese, Victoria realised what she really wanted to do. Her course was set – she learned the art of cheesemaking and brought her new found passion home to the Barossa, Australia’s most famous wine region.
