Nicasio Valley Reserve A classic Swiss-Italian mountain cheese made with organic cow’s milk from the 100-year-old family farm. Nicasio Reserve is a firm cheese with a rich flavor that is refined and luxurious from aging at least 5 months. This Alpine-style farmstead cheese won gold at the California State Fair and is recommended to pair with wheat beer and Trappist-style ales.
Valley Ford Estero Gold Estero Gold is a handmade farmstead cheese in the style of an Asiago and reminiscent of a Montasio, two of the famous cheeses from the Swiss-Italian dairy country. This young cheese, aged around 6 months, is very pliable, with grassy, fruity overtones. As it continues to age, the flavor deepens, becoming complex and nutty. It has an open texture with small holes and straw-like coloring. Its subtle, creamy and buttery taste nicely complements other foods and can be paired with any wine. It also melts wonderfully in pastas and polenta or used shredded on a salad.
Rumiano Dry Jack Cheese An American Cheese Society winner, this golden Jersey milk cheese is hand rolled, coated with pepper, cocoa and oil, and aged up to one year. Like its namesake – Monterey Jack – Dry Jack is a California original. It is a unique hard cheese with a rich, nutty flavor that works well as a grating cheese over soups, salads or pasta as well as on your favorite cheese board.
