As the name suggests, Vigneron was created by Woodside to showcase its wonderful vineyard, Coriole in McLaren Vale. The cheese is wrapped in vine leaves and then tenderly washed in white wine. When ripe, it has a velvety oozy paste, and a melt-in-the-mouth pleasantly earthy flavour. The leaves are edible but that depends on personal choice.

The cheese has won many awards including gold medal at 2010 Sydney Royal Show, 2011 World Cheese Awards, 2012 Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards and many more.
