That’s Amore Cheese cheeses are made using cow or buffalo milk locally sourced in Victoria.
Giorgio Linguanti grew up in Italy and migrated to Australia in 2004. Without a word of English, he got a job in a cheese factory where his interest and passion for making cheese ignited. After his experience in two different cheese factories, Giorgio started his own business, That’s Amore Cheese, in 2008. He began with just one product – bocconcini leaf – but was soon also making burrata and smoked scarmorza. In 2010, That’s Amore Cheese took over Donnybrook’s cheese factory and, in 2015, they moved into a larger facility in Thomastown, which includes a retail outlet.
In their shop/deli, you can find their entire artisan cheese product range made daily in their factory right next door, along with high quality Italian cured meats, olives, local, other cheeses (local and imported), Italian products and fresh bread. You can get ricotta calda (hot ricotta) until 10 am every day. There is also a little cafe where you can enjoy coffee, porchetta, pasta, gnocchi, pizza and different kinds of hot dishes (or take away).

Also known as Marca Trinacria or Pannuzzo Cheese.
Mr and Mrs Pannuzzo started making cheese themselves in Diamond Creek when they couldn’t find good quality Italian style cheese and so Wholemilk Continental Cheese was founded. With 60 years’ experience the family, now in its third generation, is dedicated to producing a 100% natural product, free from artificial additives and preservatives, giving you the best quality products made from only the best ingredients, with the greatest reward being returning customers.
Most of Yarra Valley Dairy’s cheeses are fresh, soft style cheeses made in a style that reflects the farmhouse cheese of France and Italy, although their mature cheeses have also become an important part of their range. The cheeses are made from cow’s milk from nearby Yarra Valley dairy farms and goat’s milk from Gippsland.
All of their cheeses are available for purchase in their Cheese Shop, alongside a range of carefully selected regional produce and local wines. Cheese plates, together with locally baked fresh breads and various regionally produced charcuterie items, are also available to purchase and eat in. The Cheese Shop is open 10.30am-5:00pm every day (except Christmas Day), and is located in a 100 year-old milking shed with beautiful views of the Yarra Valley. You can also view the making of the cheese through a viewing window.
