Cheese, Please!

Parmesan, Ricotta, and Gruyere, oh my! There are so many delicious types of cheese, and yet we can’t help but focus on the wine. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all looking for the next big pour in vino country, but shouldn’t we know where to purchase its most popular pairing as well?

Atelier Fine Foods

Expect to be overwhelmed, because the selection at Atelier Fine Foods is wide, varied and mouthwatering. You may be arriving for the cheese, but you’re likely going to leave with a savory collection of meats, appetizers, and desserts in addition. If you’re looking for specifics, just ask their team of experts for assistance!

Vella Cheese Company

This destination requires a little more of a drive, but it’s well worth the journey! Vella stands out as the first solar powered business in Sonoma and they offer only natural ingredients in their cheeses and coatings to boot. And as a little bonus, the company’s website provides helpful tips and tricks for cooking with this fine side item. Be sure to check it out!

For this week's SPECIALS we have the Oro Secco, Daisy Cheddar, and Monterey Soft Jack!!! See you all here 🙂
