One of life's great pleasures, a wedge of cheese is hard to beat, whether you like soft and oozy varieties or something aged and crumbly. Armed with this list of events where cheese is the headline act, you'll be having riotous cheese dreams this March. Bring it on.

Fromage a Trois Cheese Festival

From farmgate to picnic blanket, Werribee’s Fromage a Trois Cheese Festival highlights the best in artisan cheese and local produce. With cheese and wine masterclasses and even a grape stomping competition, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a variety of cheesy delights like raclette, croquettes and the more out-there treats like cheese-flavoured ice cream.

Cheeseday

With plenty of tastings and masterclasses, it truly will be a Cheeseday at That’s Amore Cheese. Learn how to make your own Italian cheese from scratch or, if DIY isn’t your thing, enjoy the cheese over a degustation lunch with a glass of wine to match. But for the true Cheeseday experience, why not do it all?

The Transcendental Trio

We’re talking wine, cheese and chocolate – surely three of the world’s favourite foods. And while they’re heavenly in their own right, when these three are masterfully combined, they create a marriage of flavours and textures that can take your enjoyment to the next level. Discover how to balance acid, tannins and sweetness in this very tasty workshop.

Wine and Cheese Festival

You’re invited to a gathering of Victoria’s best wine, cheese and artisan producers! Enjoy the view of the bays at a seaside warehouse in Williamstown with free food tastings, wine and cheese masterclasses and live entertainment for a true celebration of the senses.

A Cheese Degustation with Daniel Wilson

The team at Milk the Cow Fromagerie are opening their six-metre cheese cabinet to Melbourne’s Daniel Wilson to create a five-course degustation with cheese as the hero. The dinner will explore the flavour profiles and processes behind the featured cheeses and pair them with boutique beverages. Not for the faint-hearted (or lactose sensitive). This event will take place in Carlton and St Kilda.
