Amazing cheeses, really helpful staff
Mar 2021
Walked from where we are staying on a rather warm March afternoon and very much appreciated the air conditioning at Whitestone

After much deliberation we selected the $14 selection of cheeses with glass each of Pinot noir...there we learnt about the fabulous local Q Pinot Noir

(Side note the nearby helpful Liquorland have bottles of Q and other yummy local wines if you ask they give great advice)

The cheese was lovely, we were not rushed and staff answered queries cheerfully or gave advice and recommendations.... we learnt a lot and enjoyed all the cheeses

Great place to visit, try cheese and buy... we also bought the local honey they have.

Kept very clean, very friendly, impressive wine and great cheeses...what more can you want?

Cheese and wine, what could be better?
Nov 2020
Try the tasting platter of 6 delicious Whitestone cheeses with a glass of wine and you won't be disappointed.
There is wheelchair accessibility but you will need to have someone ask (or you phone) for staff to take you via the side entrance as the front of the building has steps.

Wowed by a cheese shop
A cheese shop is a cheese shop right! Wrong! Have been to a lot of cheese shops/stalls but nothing quite like this.
