Are you pet friendly?
Yes! We love our fur friends, but they do have to stay in the downstairs area only :)
Are your cheeses made here?
We are not a cheese producer and therefore we don’t make any of the cheeses. Whilst we do make our own wines, the cheeses come from all over the world, including Western Australia.
Where are the cows?
Unfortunately, all the cows we have on site are the toy ones in the fridge. Since we are not cheese producers, we don’t have any cows on site.
Where’s your wine from?
We are from the same family as Olive Farm Wines, and all our wines are made on site. To get to our building you drive in between our beautiful vines, where the grapes are grown and the wines are made on the building right next to us.
Do make wine from Olives?
No we don’t :) Olive Farm Wines carries that name because the founder of the winery also had an Olive Farm in our previous property in Guildford.
Do I need to book for cheese tasting?
We don’t take bookings for cheese tastings.However, if you are coming with a group of 10 or more and you would like to experience our Cheese & Wine Group Tastings, bookings are essential.
