Fantastic Raclette with interesting heritage and very informative employee. Cute little store very unassuming for this award winning cheese. She also gave us some recipes, that I look forward to trying! We will search out your cheese in our local grocery stores.

Stopped by to try the award winning cheese. Oh so good! Talked to Anne for quite awhile. What a treat to speak directly to the cheese maker. Purchased some Raclette and a partyclette. Planning to try it out with some friends this week. Can't wait!

We picked up a couple styles of the locally made cheese here. Very tasty. Staff was a tad shy of friendly but it was fine. I would recommend a stop.

Their Raclette is extraordinary, get the 'aged' it pairs well with Pinot Grigio. We love this place for their cheese and choices of many items, such as crackers and accessories of many varieties. If you visit the wineries, this needs to be your first stop....More
