Barossa Valley Cheese Company, Angaston

4.2
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.

The Barossa Valley Cheese Company opened its doors in March 2003 in the idyllic Barossa town of Angaston, rapidly claiming its place in the region's celebrated wine and food culture.

Since then, the range has expaneded to 25 different styles of cheese and the awards have been prolific. But Victoria insists that BVCC will not stray from its artisan ethos and become an industrialised factory.

β€œWe will always be an artisan producer, sourcing milk from local dairies and creating cheese imbued with the character of the locale and passion of the maker."

The Barossa Valley Cheese Company's range now includes cow and goat milk cheeses, with Victoria and her small team always seeking innovative ideas and refining traditional methods in cheesemaking. Their washed rind cheese has become a speciality, receiving a number of top awards in artisan cheese competitions.

  • Small shop with great cheeses to share. Although I've had better cheese elsewhere, the babybert is super cute and suitable for those that want just a little to taste.
  • Nice cheese shop with samples to try. However not much selection only about 4-5 cheeses to pick from and all soft cheese. Did a good tasting board and friendly staff.
  • Obviously there are cheese professionals making cheese here. The prices for there gourmet cheese are cheaper than the supermarket. There soft cheese (camembert and brie lookalike) are magnificent and a steal! You can also drink wine with a cheese platter. Highly recommended. We are going back to pick up some more bargains!
