From Guastalla to Mount Barker
With extra time to spend on perfecting your culinary skills, it’s good to know that all villas at Oakfield Rise are fitted with quality Smeg appliances. Including a stainless steel oven, range hood and ceramic hot-plate for baking, stir-frying and grilling your favourite dishes.
Smeg is an Italian home appliance manufacturer based in Guastalla in the north of Italy and has 16 subsidiaries worldwide, including Australia. Smeg has enjoyed a long standing relationship with Australia. It’s a little-known fact that in 1971, Smeg manufactured the hugely successful range of dishwashers in Australia under the “Dishlex” brand name. In 1986, the Smeg brand was introduced to Australia in its own right.
Sharing the same origin as Smeg in the northern heartland of Italy are two globally recognised delicacies, parma ham (Prosciutto di Parma) and the most highly prized parmesan cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano). In fact, the Bertazzoni family, who own Smeg, also raise cattle and produce their own parmesan cheese, so the importance of creating excellence in food is truly at the heart and soul of Smeg.
