This year we have cheese from two different creameries. Mystery Bay Farm will be joining us again this year. They are a small scale family operation producing artisan che’vre a mile down the road from our winery. Their new flavors of che’vre this year are sure to be a huge hit paired with the wines we have selected. The other creamery we’ve invited to join us, is Golden Glen Creamery. Golden Glen Creamery produces all natural, handcrafted cheeses out of Bow, Wa. The cheese they produce has a distinctive, amazing taste that can’t be replicated by other cheese making methods, making it very unique. We will be pairing each cheese we have selected with our wines individually.
