Casa Carboni is an Italian Cooking School and Enoteca in Angaston, established by Fiona and Matteo Carboni in 2012 after moving to Australia from Parma, northern Italy late 2011. The cooking school offers an authentic Italian experience with recipes inspired by Matteo’s homeland and his Nonna Pia, brought to life by the great selection of fresh farm gate produce available here in the Barossa.
Casa Carboni’s cooking school is designed for intimate groups of up to 6 people for completely hands on cooking classes either 1.5hrs or 3hrs. Also offered are cooking demonstration classes and tastings and children’s cooking classes. Matteo’s classes are a great opportunity to learn and have fun in the kitchen. Matteo’s philosophy is to teach traditional recipes based on the best of seasonal Barossa produce, showing different techniques that can be easily replicated at home with the same results.
And the best bit – at the conclusion of the class, everyone is seated in the Enoteca to enjoy the wonderful dishes you have prepared with a glass of wine and espresso coffee.

Barossa Valley Cheese Company
While working a vintage in Bordeaux as a winemaker, Victoria Glaetzer found her focus moved to the artisan cheese of the area – she learned the art of cheese making and brought her new found passion home to the Barossa. The Barossa Valley Cheese Company opened its doors in March 2003. Since then, the range has expanded to 14 different styles of cheese. The cow and goats milk is sourced from local dairies to produce a beautiful range of hand-made soft white mould, washed rind and fresh style cheeses. Their washed rind cheese has become a speciality, receiving a number of top awards in artisan cheese competitions. The Cheese Cellar is located in the main street of Angaston and there is always a range of cheeses available for tasting. The store also has a range of condiments such as crackers, olives, tapenades to pick up to build your own scrumptious cheese tasting plate.
Open: 7 days
