The Cellars at Jasper Hill Farm
Cheese Tasting with Scott Harbour
Saturday, December 14, 2019
2pm to 4pm
We are very excited to have Scott Harbour with us this Saturday afternoon. Scott is the head cheesemaker at Jasper Hill Farm in Vermont. The Cellars at Jasper Hill Farm is located in Greensboro, Vermont where they have seven caves dedicated to aging a wonderful variety of cheeses. In addition to making their own cheeses, Jasper Hill works with five other creameries as an affineur (a specialist in aging cheese). Jasper Hill Farm is also a leader in the American Cheese Community. We admire their dedication to creating environmentally sustainable products, community outreach, and for their help in the ongoing fight for access to raw milk cheeses in the United States.
In addition to some of our favorites, we have some new cheeses at the counter! Jasper Hill is now making mixed-milk cheeses using a blend of cow and goat’s milk. Come down and try Eligo and Bridgeman Blue as they make their debut in the Pacific Northwest!
We currently have a the following Jasper Hill cheeses available for purchase:
Come by Saturday afternoon to meet Scott while tasting some of our favorites from Jasper Hill Farm!
Veneto Wine Tasting
Thursday, December 12th
5:30 – 7:30
We have some lovely wines to share with you this Thursday evening! Dario Oman of Casa Bruno Wines has picked out a diverse selection from Italy’s northeastern region, Veneto. These wines are both delicious and wonderful choices for any upcoming holiday parties.
Here’s what Dario’s pouring:
Fidora Tenuta Civranetta Prosecco
This dry sparkling is made from Glera grapes from Northern Italy’s first certified organic winery. It has a rich body with fresh acidity.
2017 Roncho Balnchis Collio Friulano
This wine is made by the famous Veneto Producer, Lorenzo Palla. Friulano is a native grape to Northeast Italy, it typically has sweet aromas. The wine’s flavor and texture make it extremely cheese friendly.
2017 Dorigo Cabernet Franc
An elegant, yet very Italian expression of this french grape variety. This Cab Franc pairs well with charcuterie.
2016 Case Paolin Rosso del Milio
This red is made from a blend of Merlot and Carmenere. Pair with rich foods during the cold weather.
As always tastings are complimentary!
