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.
BAVARIAN PRETZEL BITES – German pretzel bites served hot with our house-made Lusty Monk Mustard and Beer Cheese Sauce.
BRUSCHETTA – Fresh, roasted cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, 12 year balsamic vinegar, and basil oil served warm on Armand’s Herbed Altomura Bread.
BURRATA W/ SUN-DRIED TOMATO MARINARA – Fresh Mozzarella with House-made Basil oil and a Sun-dried tomato/Caramelized onion Marinara, served with warm Focaccia bread.
HOT SPINACH & ARTICHOKE DIP – Made with whole milk, cream cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Feta, Artichoke Hearts, and Fresh Baby Spinach. Served with warm pita.
