Curated Artisan Cheese ~ Exclusive to Club Members
paired correctly wine and cheese bring out the best in each other . . .
Our Cheese ClubWe have always enjoyed tasting cheese from creameries all over the world. In our travels we found hundreds of creameries producing unique and delicious cheeses.
We delight in finding these talented farmers and artisans, pairing their cheese with our wines and sharing them with our Members to enjoy.
Over a decade has passed since Members asked us to pair our wines with cheese and to create a cheese club for them to enjoy our cheese selections and pairings.
Our cheese database now has hundreds of exceptional cheeses many of which we have paired with our wines and every quarter we select six cheeses for our cheese club members.
Cheese club membership is exclusive to our wine club members. There is no commitment so it can be added and removed at any time and the quarterly shipment of six cheeses is the same cost as a single bottle of wine.
Every quarter we select six cheeses for our cheese club members. Four ounces of each cheese is paired with a wine in our quarterly wine club shipment. All six are provided at a fixed price per shipment plus shipping.Learn More Add Cheese Club
