Like peanut butter and jelly or chips and salsa, wine and cheese just go together. It just makes sense.

For whatever occasion we're celebrating - Galentine's Day, National Wine & Cheese Day, someone special's birthday, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, or just because it's the weekend - we wanted to provide some simple pairing suggestions featuring a handful of our cheeses!

  • Everything Bagel Fromage Blanc with a bottle of Bubbles for brunch
  • Big Sur with something sparkling and crusty bread 
  • Ragged Point with Rosé
  • Moonstone with Pinot Noir
  • Cabrillo with Mourvedre or Syrah
  • Rocky Butte with a full-bodied red like Cab-Sauv
  • For beer fans try pairing LumberJack with something light like a lager or pilsner

Cheese Spotlight: Paso Vino

Our Paso Vino cheese is the true marriage of wine and cheese and is soaked in a bath of a local, aromatic Syrah after pressing and before aging.

We've partnered with a local Central Coast winery, Austin Hope, to create a full-bodied, inky wine specifically crafted for cheese making. What makes this collaboration even more special to us is our cheesemaker, Robin’s wife, Samantha, is their assistant winemaker!

This delicious Spanish-style cow's milk cheese is our smallest format hard cheese. Buy online or find our cheese at a local retailer or farmer's market.
