How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Cheese

 Since Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, we thought we’d make it easy for you to pick out a cheesy treat for your sweetie. Here are some of the gifts we’d love to get from our secret and not-so-secret admirers on February 14.

Send your loved one a cheesy care package.

Forget the jewelry—it’s cheese your beloved really wants! Our online cheese shop is full of wheels, blocks, wedges, and bundles of cheese just waiting to be shipped to their door. Cow, sheep, goat, it’s all there. Or go all out with one of our tasting boxes, loaded with great cheeses and spectacular accompaniments for pairing. 

For a gift that lasts long beyond February, check out our Monthly Cheese Subscription or our Quarterly Cheese Subscription. They’ll be reminded of your thoughtfulness every time a new delivery arrives.

Pick out some shiny new cheese gear for your sweetie.

Maybe your sweetheart has already stuffed their Cheese Grotto to the gills. What to do? Well, we know from experience that you can never have too much cheese gear. Cute knives, beautiful boards, and chic servers are great options, as are home cheesemaking kits

Of course, if your cheesy valentine is still storing their cheese wrapped in paper or plastic, they might appreciate a cheese storage upgrade. Order up our flagship Classico, a spacious Fresco, a compact Mezzo, or a petite Piatto and give them a delicious new home for their favorite wedges. Or get them a digital gift card and let them pick out exactly what they want. 

Make your special someone an extra-special cheese board.

When it comes to holidays, it’s the thought that counts, right? If you’re lucky enough to be sharing space with your valentine this year—or close enough to do a drive-by fromage dropoff—whip them up a Valentine’s Day cheese board with a few special wedges and tasty pairings. 

We made it easy for you to put together with a whole section of guides to help you pick some excellent cheeses and ideal pairings. You can follow the fill-the-board format or buck the trend with a minimalist cheese board. Add a bottle of something to drink (holidays are a great excuse for bubbly) and a bouquet of flowers. They’ll love you forever. 

Give your love a sensory feast with a Valentine’s Day virtual cheese class.

Video is no substitute for being together in person, but it comes in handy when we want to stay connected with the people we care about. One of the best ways to make them more fun? Add a tactile, delicious learning experience like a virtual cheese tasting! It’s a great way for lovers, friends, and family to spend time together from afar. 

That’s why we’re hosting a Valentine’s Virtual Cheeseboard Building Class on Sunday, February 13! You can log on and learn how to build and pair with Cheese Grotto's cheeseboard guru, Kerry Jerred. We’re featuring three special wedges from our American artisans, six accompaniments, and crackers. Get tickets for you and your love(s) here.

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.
