TODAY’S SELECTION OF CHEESES

DEER CREEK “THE FAWN” CHEDDAR – International Cheese Awards 2017 & 2018 Gold Winner for Best USA Mature Cheddar:  A unique culture set gives this young cheese an award-winning, sweet nuttiness with a full, complex Cheddar flavor not found in traditional bandage-wrapped Cheddars.  Pairs perfectly with full-bodied reds or an oaky, buttery Chardonnay.

WISCONSIN 4 YEAR AGED CHEDDAR – Aged just enough to bring out the full-bodied flavor without losing its creamy smoothness.  Great with Gruner Veltliner, Friulano, Nebbiolo, and other hearty reds. 

RAYPAENAER 2 YEAR AGED GOUDA – From the oldest maturing house in Holland.  The flavor is intense and creamy with strong hints of butterscotch and caramel.  Try with a Cabernet, Merlot, or Blend.

CARPUCLA SPANISH MANCHEGO –  Sheep’s milk cheese from La Mancha.  Pairs nicely with spicy reds like Garnacha or Zinfandel, and acidic whites like Albarino.

SAINT ANGEL TRIPLE-CREAM BRIE – Buttery with a little salt, a somewhat strong tang, and a hint of earth and white mushroom.  Pair with Pinot Gris, White Burgundy, Pinot Noir, or Gamay.

SARTORI MONTAMORE Sartori Montamore is a Wisconsin artisan cheese made from pasteurized cow’s milk. This cheese is a member of the parmesan family and offers a creamy, fruity, sweet, and tangy flavour.  Is it Cheddar that tastes like Parmesan, or Parmesan that tastes like Cheddar?

PARMAGIANNO-REGGIANO – A classic from Parma.  Pairs perfectly with bold, red wines like Barolo or Sangiovese.

GARLIC & HERB CHEVRE – Infused with fresh garlic and herbs throughout, which adds a savory dimension to the cheese.  Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir pairs nicely with this cheese.
