Dropped in. They have free tasting of the cheeses they make. Really nice. We then chose a cheese board of the ones we liked with a beer and a wine from the winery next door. There is an gift shop next door as well.

We really enjoyed the 3 cheese platter with a variety of crackers, grapes and pickles washed down by a very nice Rose. Plenty of pickles, honey, sauces and condiments to choose from displayed in the shop. Nice place to visit.

We called in after a visit to the winery and lunch at the restaurant next-door. Sadly the power was off but the cheese was spot on! Great choice of varieties and options to taste. The staff dealt with the power problems with a smile.More
