Full details

How it works

We'll help you select three kinds of cheese and crackers from our available catalog of internationally award-winning, American artisan cheeses. We'll provide beverage and accompaniment pairing tips before our event date. We'll coordinate shipping one of our cheese kits to each location.

Each cheese kit serves up to 3 people for a tasting. Our resident cheese expert will join you on the special event day on the platform of your choosing. They will start with a short presentation on the best way to taste cheese as well as the fundamentals of cheesemaking. Then they will guide the group in gallery view through the cheese flight, answering questions along the way.

Digital tasting notes and pairing tips will be sent to each person for this experience. If you love cheese, this event is for you!
