A Passion for Good Food, Good Drink & Good Company

"Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking had God not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity” – Voltaire

Cheese and wine have long been seen as trappings of high society, but why do cheese & wine have to be snobby? After all, we’re really just talking about peasant food – wine, beer and cheese were created in order to preserve the perishable staples of farmhouse life. And luckily for us, after centuries of honing techniques and recipes, this peasant food happens to be absolutely delicious.

On one side of our shop, we have a cut-to-order retail cheese counter that offers approx 80-90 different small-batch, handmade cheeses made locally, across the US and in Europe. On the other side of our counter, we offer grocery items that fill the need of market-goers, including locally-made fresh pasta; cured meats; olives and antipasto items. And best of all, we offer a curated by-the-glass wine and beer list specially chosen to match with our unique cheeses.
