Only a few kilometres down the road was Wicked Cheese. Cheese and wine are a match made in heaven, so we stopped to have a look. Best. Decision. Ever. When you enter the big room, to the left you can see two cheese rooms, where the cheeses are maturing.
The owner of Wicked Cheese, Ashley McCoy, was offering us different cheeses to taste. He has a degree in Dairy Technology and used to be the head cheese-maker at King Island Dairy, so he knows what he is talking about. His cheeses were beautiful!
My favourites were the ‘Wicked Smoked Brie’ and the ‘Wicked Triple Cream Brie’, L loved the ‘Wicked Chilli Camembert’ and the ‘Wicked Nanny Goat Blue Cheese’. I loved smoked cheeses but had never tried a smoked brie before, the smoky flavour was perfect combined with the creamy texture.
The chilli camembert had a good dose of chilli in it, but even for someone like me who can’t eat super spicy it was delicious! While tasting their different cheese, Ashleigh explained to us the art of cheese-making and we were even allowed to take a peak inside the room where bries were at different stages of evolving their flavours and that typical white mould on the outside.
If you are in the area, you should definitely head to Wicked Cheese, we couldn’t help ourselves but buy a few different kinds of cheese.
