Pure Artisan Cheese now for sale at Witches Falls.
We are excited to be able to announce that Witches Falls have teamed up with local artisan producer Pure Artisan Cheese and are now selling their amazing range of locally produced cheeses exclusively through the Witches Falls Cellar Door.
Cheesemaker Michael Reeve was a cheesemaker at Denhay Farms in the UK before migrating to Australia. Starting as a packer, he’d worked his way up in the world of cheese, gaining skills and confidence on his journey to the top.
By 2009, Michael had gained recognition as the Most Consistent Cheesemaker in the West Country and had won the prize for Best Traditional Cheddar in the world, with his cheeses consumed by Prince Charles. So, it’s surprising to know that on coming to Australia to take up a position in the Barossa in 2013, he’d only made cheddar!
Now, all that has changed. Michael is a fount of knowledge about cheese, making many different varieties including Pure Blue, Vintage Cheddar, Washed Rind, Marinated Feta and Haloumi, or the decadent Black Ash Triple Cream Brie, a smooth ‘melt in your mouth’ delight.
He explains how all the milk to make Pure Artisan Cheese comes from the one carefully controlled dairy: Scenic Rim 4Real Milk, where cows are milked in a robotic system without human handling.
Michael Reeve Michael’s passion for cheese making brims over and the proof is in the eating – the cheese is sensational!
