Grandvewe Cheeses

The Southeast

About 3km south of Peppermint Bay is this top stop for foodies. Grandvewe Cheeses churns out organic cheese from sheep’s milk – Tasmania's only sheep cheesery. Snack on a cheese platter (the pecorino and blue are perfection; $10 to $15) and nose into some pinot noir from local wineries or some rather amazing sheep-whey vodka!
