Celebrate Valentine's Day with artisan cheese, chocolate, and wine! We've partnered with Suhru Wines to put together a Virtual Wine & Cheese Tasting on Sunday, February 14th from 5:30 to 6:30pm EST! We'll be focusing on heart-shaped and chocolate-friendly cheeses that pair beautifully with Sparkling Brut & Merlot.
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 cheese, chocolate, and wine 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 8oz Wheel of Limited Run Heart-Shaped Cottonbell, 1 4oz Wedge of Taleggio-Style Lissome, and 1 4oz Wedge of Bayley Hazen Blue, and Crackers

More about the cheeses
We're highlighting Boxcarr Handmade Cheese's Limited Edition Heart-Shaped Cottonbell: a lush, buttery bloomy rind cheese reminiscent of Italian robiola. It is absolutely stunning with Sparkling Brut. We're also featuring Boxcarr's Lissome: a beer-washed taleggio-style that pairs excellently with chocolate.
And where would we be without a buttery blue in a cheese, chocolate, and wine tasting? We're featuring Jasper Hill Farm's Bayley Hazen Blue, the Reserve Supreme Champion winner at the International Cheese Awards in 2019.
