Cheese Making & Tasting

Cupitt Fromagerie was established in 2015 and produces a variety of boutique cheese here on-site on the South Coast of NSW. Our cheeses are all made and matured using traditional techniques and are very much inspired by Rosie Cupitt’s travels and training throughout great cheese producing regions in France and Italy. They are the cheeses she loves to make and eat!

Rosie is a consultant winemaker well-versed in the technology of winemaking, and began to turn her attention to cheese making after doing a number of cheese courses with world-renowned cheese maker Ivan Larcher.

Rosie Makes Cheese with her colleague AK Williams.  She is an award-winning author and cheesemaker with a degree in agroforestry. For four years she was the assistant manager at Benton Brothers Fine Cheese on Granville Island in Vancouver, Canada. In 2015 Williams moved to Australia to become a certified cheesemaker and in 2016 won a gold medal for her cloth-bound cheddar at the Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards.  Her debut ebook How to Say Cheese – An Interactive Cheese Journey, has received rave reviews, six prestigious awards, an Inclusion into Simon Fraser Universities’ Personal Library and featured in Celebrating Five Years of iBook Authorby Score Publishing.

The Cupitt Fromagerie sources all of its milk from local farms.
It’s the quality of this local milk which has encouraged her to continue and develop the fromagerie, producing outstanding boutique cheeses.
