The Mount Alexander Tastes Showcase is a weekend long spotlight on the region’s amazing food and drink producers, taking place from Thursday 25 to Monday 29 April 2024.

During the Showcase you can take a Cheese Masterclass at Long Paddock Cheese. This special full day class is taught by one of their cheesemakers, Lydia, former senior at Holy Goat Cheese.  It is a structured hands-on workshop, focusing on what is required to make great artisan cheese at home, with lots of goodies to take home with you. The day wraps up with a wine/beer/cider and cheese pairing session.

You can also learn the art of Sour Dough Baking with a one day class at Sprout Bakery.  Both classes are suitable for beginners and those looking to up-skill.

Enjoy Shiraz 5 Ways at Boomtown Wines, immerse yourself in Austrian coffee culture, experience cheese and beer matching at the Taproom at Shedshaker Brewing Co. and meet various other makers as part of the showcase.

Masterclasses and some events require booking; other experiences are available when you walk in.
