What do Olympus Cheese, whiskey and a cravat have in common? We’ll all be seen in Rymill Park next weekend! Olympus Cheese are very excited to be heading down to Adelaide for a festival of epic proportions – CheeseFest + Ferment. Run over two days, it will one great big celebration of cheese, wine and other fermented delights. We make the trip in conjunction with Festival City Wines, our distributors in the region.

The festival combines two popular Adelaide festivals, Cheesefest and Ferment the Festival. It celebrates all things fermentation and gut health, which consists of a huge array of foods including cheese, wine, beer and whiskey. What that looks like, is a wonderful South Australian foodie experience over two days. Visitors can enjoy South Australian cheese and wine with special tastings, as well as pairing cheese with beer and whiskey. There will also be cooking demos, food stalls, live music a popular FERMENT bar and of course cheese and more cheese with 23 Australian cheesemaker stalls.
