Redhead Creamery's Mini Heart Brie, 4oz

A soft-ripened, bloomy rind cow cheese that has a bright curd and white button mushroom flavor. Allow to come to room temp to have a spreadable cheese perfect for a cracker or baguette.

Spring Brook Farm Reading Raclette, 8oz

An award-winning, American artisan favorite, Reading is aged approximately three months, and is washed with a brine solution during its aging process. The result is a unique creamy texture balanced by nutty, grassy undertones found closer to the rind (the rind tastes like peanuts!). This versatile semi-firm cheese ideally suited to melting, but it exhibits a subtle yet complex flavor profile that allows it to stand alone on any cheese plate.

Deer Creek Cheese The Stag Clothbound Cheddar, 6oz

Select vats of Deer Creek's younger Cheddar, The Fawn, are chosen for further aging to allow for the development of the intense, bold, yet balanced flavor characteristics of The Stag. This complex Cheddar tastes like the Cheddar of the founder's youth: buttered popcorn on the nose, with a bright lemon curd acidity that evolves into rich toffee and cured meat flavor characteristics.

At 17 months old, The Stag features gloriously crunchy protein crystals that provide that burst of fruitiness while maintaining its flaky, creamy texture. A traditional bandage-wrapped 22 lb. daisy wheel Cheddar, The Stag is a true Wisconsin Original. Chosen as one of the “101 Best Cheeses of the Year” by Culture Magazine.

Three Milène Jardine 70% Dark Chocolate Bars

New York Times-featured chocolatier Milène Jardine makes a dark chocolate bar rich in cocoa butter resulting a smooth, full-bodied chocolate that pairs excellently with cheese. Made with fruity Peruvian beans and toasty notes from Ecuador’s Cacao Arriba the blend leaves you with a balanced taste of dried fruit and sweet spices. Pair with a delicate Bordeaux like Chateau Viaud-Laland, Lalande de Pomerol (2014) and our Brie. The rich and creamy texture of the cheese paired with the dark chocolate, and long finish of the Bordeaux make an indulgent combination.

Two Milène Jardine Custom Cheese-Infused Chocolate Truffles

It starts by melting Reading Raclette cheese into the ganache as it is freshly being made. The cheese-infused ganache is packaged inside a crisp, dark chocolate shell and finished with citrus bourbon sea salt (gluten-free). Experience the ultimate cheese and chocolate pairing in one delightful bite, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Olina's Crackers

These deliciously thin crackers are made in Australia, from wheat flower and a touch of umami-rich cheese, making them an excellent match for your at-home cheese tasting experience.

About the Producer

A variety of specialty food products curated by Cheese Grotto.

Serving Suggestions

After you’ve assembled your board, pour one of these pairings to enjoy with your cheese and chocolate.

Wine: Seek out full-bodied, fruit-forward red wines that will play well with the dark chocolates and flavorful cheeses in this box. Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon are great places to start. Bubbles (think Champagne and Prosecco) as well as dessert wines like Vin Santo and port work well too.

Beer: Sip malt-forward beers like amber ales, red ales, brown ales, dark lagers, barleywines, porters, and stouts with cheese and chocolate.

Cocktails: Aged spirits like bourbon, Scotch, rum, and tequila tend to go well with the caramel-y, nutty, and fruity notes in craft chocolate while complementing a variety of cheese styles.

Ingredients

Ingredients are variable as we occasionally we substitute one artisan product for another, or one artisan cheese for another, depending on seasonality and availability. Please mark your allergies in the checkboxes provided above the Add to Cart button.

The Cheese Grotto is fantastic - it keeps my blocks of cheese fresher for longer periods of time, unwrapped in all their glory.

It really does extend the life of cheese over time. Aside from the functionality, the Cheese Grotto looks great and is easy to maintain.
