Party Bus with the Antonellis
For those of you hitting up ACL, fear not. You can stay in an air-conditioned bus with us pregaming during the day, and then head to the festival at 4pm. As our business has grown, we are lucky to have a team that covers evenings and weekends for us. To that end, we don't host a lot of weekend events anymore. That being said, the two of us are kicking off this event like old times together. We hope you'll join us! (Appreciations to Pure Luck Farm & Diary for opening their closed farm to our private group, as well as to Infinite Monkey Theorem for co-sponsoring this event.)
To see how much fun we've had in the past, just google #CheeseyBusTour and/or #GoatSelfie. I challenge you to find anything but smiles and good vibes, and the occasional person weeping with gratitude over an awesome day. Yes, that kind of day y'all. See you Saturday 10/5? Ticket details here.
Upcoming Tastings & Classes

Wed 10/2 (6:30pm) - Balsamics & Cheese Pairings with Con'Olio - perfect pairings series
Thu 10/3 (6:30pm) - Prosciutto, Salami, and Cheese...Oh My!
Sat 10/5 (10-6) - Cheesey Bus Tour to Pure Luck Farm and Infinite Monkey Theorem
With that, we're so excited to bring Con'Olio's amazing olive oils and vinegars to the Cheese Shop for you to sample! We now have two shining stainless steel Fusti containers from which we tap into a bright, flavorsome Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a sweet, rich Traditional Balsamic Vinegar. Made from a unique Portugese varietal, the Cobrançosa Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of Con' Olio's most popular selections. This robust olive oil is herbaceous, slightly bitter and finishes with a peppery bite. While strong and grassy, oil from the Cobrançosa is ideal for cooking and pairing, as it maintains its complexity and depth even when coupled with flavorful dishes and cheeses. Aged for up to 18 years using a traditional solera system, this Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Modena is an ideal match for a full-bodied olive oil like the Cobrançosa for a luxurious bread dip. Syrupy and tangy, this vinegar is surprisingly dense, a trait achieved without added sugars or thickening agents. Truly an elixir for all occasions, this Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is an excellent drizzle on fruit, ice cream, or a simple, traditional Caprese salad made with a decadent Mozzarella di Bufala.
Lastly, if you're now jonesing for some good olive oil, balsamic, and cheese pairings, come to our collaboration tasting and pairing at the Cheese House on 10/2 at 6:30pm. Ticket info here. Both female owners - Tabatha and myself (Kendall) will be leading this tasty event! (Note: When you can visit Con'Olio, we suggest you do so; your tastebuds will be happy! But when you can't, we're offering these two selections at the same price that Tabatha and her team do. So thanks to Con'Olio and lucky you...and us...Lastly, HAPPY TENTH ANNIVERSARY to TABATHA AND THE CON'OLIO TEAM! We are so happy for you and so grateful to be part of your celebration.)
