Pinot and cheese events in Sydney and Melbourne
Two events worthy of your consideration, one promises to be a heaven for cheese-lovers (aren’t we all?) and the other a heavenly pinot noir event. What would life be without pinot and cheese?
This event is free to enter, and there will be over half a tonne of cheese for punters to eat, free of charge. Cheese will also be available for purchase. The festival is expected to attract more than 6,000 people across the weekend. There will be a series of masterclasses and demonstrations from some of Sydney’s top cheese purveyors. The festival is presented by the Centre National Interprofessionel de l’Economie Laitière, with the support of the European Union.
And to wash it all down? The festival is working directly with a handful of small wineries in Italy and France. There will be French pinot noir from Fat Bastard, Italian prosecco from Bandini, Italian pinot grigio from Aquilani, and Côtes de Provence rosé from Rameau d’Or.
