In celebration of winter and the holidays, we have partnered with our friends at Suhru Wines to put together a Virtual Wine & Cheese Tasting on Sunday, December 6th from 5:30 to 6:30pm EST! We'll be focusing on rich, winter cheeses that pair beautifully with Sparkling Brut & Seasonal Reds.
With your purchase you will receive an invitation to join our Virtual Tasting, hosted by Shelby Hearn of Suhru Wines and Jessica Sennett the founder of Cheese Grotto. During this Zoom Virtual Tasting we will walk you through each of the three wine and cheese pairings, giving you a little background on each of the items you are tasting, and discussing how the flavors compliment and more.
The Tasting will include:
1 5oz Wheel of Decadent Spruce-Bark Wrapped Harbison, 1 6oz Wedge of Appalachian, and 1 6oz Wedge Mountaineer Alpine Cheese, and Crackers
Digital tasting literature on the pairings and recommended accompaniments for your cheese board.

More about the cheeses
We're highlighting Jasper Hill Farm's mini-format Harbison: a decadent, spreadable bloomy rind cheese wrapped spruce bark. The spruce bark lends a signature smoky, woodsy note to the final cheese that is gorgeous as a main course with roasted vegetables or as a dessert with fruit compote.
We're also highlighting gorgeous, seasonal raw milk cheeses from Meadowcreek Dairy. Appalachian is a smooth, semi-firm cheese that is an excellent melting cheese for savory dishes as we as served on a cheeseboard with cured meats and pickled vegetables.
Meadowcreek's Mountaineer takes after a dense, nutty alpine-style cheese that will become your American artisan classic for Gruyere, Beaufort, or Comte cheese.
