Beaufort de Printemps & Jeune Autise Now In Stock!
Please come by the shop and have a taste of these two stellar cheeses that we at Cheese Bar are excited to have back in our case.
- Beaufort de Printemps- Beaufort is a large format rich and creamy alpine-style cheese from the Savoie region in France. It is made with raw milk from tarentaise cows that graze on fresh pastoral grasses and wild flowers. Sweet and herbaceous on the palate with floral aromas of Spring!
- Rudolph le Meunier Jeune Autise- The Jeune Autise is a washed rind goat’s milk cheese from the Loire Valley. Made in the style of Morbier with a layer of vegetable ash running through the middle but using goat’s milk instead of cow’s milk. This particular wheel is one of the best we have ever received! It tastes as beautiful as it looks; buttery, with a nice goaty tang on the finish. A visually appealing and tasty addition to your cheese plate
Burrata Season is Here!
Burrata season is in full swing! We will be receiving our weekly shipments of domestic Burrata on Friday afternoons, just in time for the weekend!
Wine Tasting with Loop de Loop, Thursday, August 13th, 5:30–7:30pm
Loop de Loop is a project created by Julia Bailey in an effort to put into practice what she has learned and continues to learn from working in Oregon’s wine industry. Matt Berson of Love and Squalor has been her mentor over the last 4 years and directly oversaw and helped in the creation of these wines. Loop de Loop wines use only indigenous yeast and undergo no manipulation, with minimal intervention of any sort. The effort here is to showcase the fruit and the place from where it comes!
2014 Loop de Loop, Riesling, Sunnyside Vineyard
- Only three barrels of this indigenous yeast fermentation dry Riesling were made! That’s just 65 cases. It comes from Sunnyside Vineyard, which is a Low Input Viticulture and Enology (LIVE) certified vineyard site. It was planted in 1971 and is still on the original root stock! By Oregon standards, these are some pretty old vines!
2012 Loop de Loop, Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton AVA
- By pure coincidence, these vines were also planted in 1971! 100% Pomard clone Pinot Noir from a marginal vineyard site that worked out extremely well in 2012. It created a much lighter bodied and balanced Pinot compared to many of the overly ripe, jammy, and juicy Pinots made in this vintage. There were only four barrels of this wine made in neutral oak with indigenous yeast fermentation and minimal intervention.
As usual, the tasting is complimentary, and wines will be discounted Thursday only!
