From cheese-making to wine-pairing, cooking and blending we've put our top 5 food and beverage masterclasses together for an unforgettable Adelaide Hills day out. 

“It’s all cheese to me...”

Until you experience a masterclass with Artisan Cheese Makers Kris and Mitch Lloyd of Woodside Cheese Wrights. This mother-son power duo has disrupted the cheese world with their edgy creations, and are taking the mystery out of making cheese at their intimate masterclasses.

With no more than 12 participants in a class, you’ll get plenty of one-on-one time to ask questions while you perfect your own traditional feta cheese.

Over in Hahndorf, Sheree from Udder Delights on Main Street has you covered with a cheese and wine ‘Easy Cheesy Home Cheese Making’ masterclass. Held in their underground cellar, you’ll learn how to make feta, camembert and ricotta during this premium class, enjoy coffee and cake at the end and a take home cheese gift!

“Terroir, Terroir” 

ChocoVino is based on the concept of terroir. Taking your tastebuds on a journey of chocolate and wine in a fun and informative way, you’ll taste the best chocolate from top chocolate houses in Australia and France with matched boutique wines from Hahndorf Hill winery. 

Take it all in their glass-enclosed ChocoVino tasting room with spectacular views of the vineyard and the surrounding Hahndorf countryside.

Tastings take place 7 days a week from 11am, and bookings are recommended.

“Pass the wine darling!” 

Join flamboyant foodie Rilka Warbanoff at Rilka's Kitchen in Hahndorf for a 3-hour cooking class you'll never forget, before sitting down to an indulgent low sugar, gluten free 3-course meal with wine. Classes can be tailored to small groups, milestone celebrations and corporate teams.

If you’re looking to up the indulgence factor with a cooking class and overnight stay, then the Sticky Rice Cooking School and Villas in Stirling are a must see and do. Make a weekend of it, exploring all the region has to offer before donning your apron and enjoying a guided cooking class before retiring to one of three villas on site inspired by Bali, Thailand and Japan. Packages are suitable for couples, small groups, or something different for your wedding party!
