Classy cheese lovers, rejoice.
They say there’s nothing a piece of cheese can’t fix, and now Geelong’s got a delicious foodie event to put that saying to the test.
Say hello to High Cheese, the new and improved version of high tea, which is making its way to Mt Duneed Estate in July.
Located just 15 minutes from Geelong and the Surf Coast, or an hour from Melbourne, Mt Duneed Estate are providing the classy and flair of the dessert-filled high tea you’re used too but with a focus on cheesy goodness. So, in short, absolute heaven.
Looking for more cheese? Check out this late-night bar featuring a cheese train that is opening on Pakington Street in an Australian-first.
For $79 per person, this brilliant two hour all-inclusive begins with a red or white wine flight where you can taste the differences in climate, vintage and soil that makes the wineries three varieties. From there, you get to indulge in their take on a high tea, with a mix of cheese and wine inspired sweet and savoury delicacies.
Think Sweet Shiraz pickled beetroot puree, L’Artisan triple cream brie, fruit and nut crackers, poached local quince, hand sliced smoked salami, pickled chilli, and house marinated olives; Baked tonka bean and vanilla cheesecake, shiraz and blackberry jelly, White chocolate cupcakes with sangria frosting, traditional scones with jam and cream; and 15-hour Shiraz braised beef brisket, Chipotle BBQ sauce, house pickle, smoked Fontina, mini charcoal sliders, and Chardonnay steamed prawn and Asian herb rice paper roll.
To top it all off, they’re even offering bottomless glasses of Blanc de Blanc (bubbles), Moscato or sparking shiraz, tea and coffee. Oh, and you’ll get to enjoy it all in the stunning surrounds of the winery’s idyllic location.
THIS is what dreams are made of.
There are currently a few dates to choose from with the event going down on two Sundays in July, August and September from 2pm to 4pm.
