Unique Cheese Experiences for a Memorable Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is not just about flowers and chocolates; it's a celebration of love in all its forms. In our previous posts, we've delved into the delightful world of pairing cheese with wine and chocolate, a combination that’s perfect for this day of romance. This year, let's take it a step further by creating unique and memorable experiences with cheese for your special day.

Hosting a Valentine’s Day Cheese Tasting Event

Creating the Perfect Ambiance

Transform your home into a cozy, romantic setting for a cheese tasting. Think soft lighting, comfortable seating, and decorations that set a loving mood. A beautifully set table can make all the difference in creating an intimate experience.

Selecting a Variety of Cheeses

When choosing cheeses for your tasting, variety is key. Include different textures and flavors – think a creamy Brie, a sharp Cheddar, and perhaps a tangy blue cheese. Consider the origin of each cheese as well, adding an international flair to your selection.

Pairing with Non-Alcoholic Beverages

While wine is a classic choice, don't overlook non-alcoholic options. Sparkling apple cider, artisanal sodas, and specialty teas can complement your cheese selection beautifully for those who prefer non-alcoholic pairings.

DIY Cheeseboard Creation for Couples

Building a Cheeseboard Together

Creating a cheeseboard is not only fun but also a great way to bond. Start by selecting a range of cheeses, then add various accompaniments like crackers, nuts, and fruits. The act of assembling a cheeseboard together can be a playful and intimate activity.

Tips for a Stunning Presentation

Aesthetics matter when it comes to cheeseboards. Balance your selection of cheeses with the accompaniments, and pay attention to the color and texture. Use different cheese knives for each cheese to add a sophisticated touch.

Cheese-Based Valentine’s Day Recipes

Cooking Together

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
