About

This is one of our most popular tastings and we are very excited to partner with local artisan Confituras. This tasting will feature seven kinds of cheese and seven jams, chutneys, and preserves. We incorporate sweet and savory pairings throughout the tasting. With flavors like Chocolate strawberry jam, Meyer lemon curd, and Grapefruit rose jelly, Confituras offers small-batch, locally sourced jams, jellies, and preserves that are as unique as the season.

This class will be hosted by one of our expert cheesemongers and Confituras owner, Stephanie McClenny. Confituras was born in the summer of 2010 when, after several years of preserving the local bounty that Austin’s farmers’ markets had to offer, owner Stephanie McClenny was ready to reach out and share her love of preserving in the form of a small jam company. It did not take long for the emerging local food-loving community in Austin to recognize and appreciate her commitment to quality, seasonality, and really good jam.

Expect the tasting to be about 1 hour and a half, followed by the opportunity to purchase the cheese & sundries you tasted and have them brought to your seat! We look forward to getting cheese-y with you!

Want to sit with specific people? Purchase all tickets on the same transaction. Please also note that our tables can only seat 7 people. Due to the size and shape of the Cheese House tasting room and the intimacy of the class, only groups that purchase tickets on one credit card will be seated together.

Please respect our event hosts’ goal to create a positive and unforgettable experience for all attendees. If your group is loud or disruptive, our event hosts will give you a warning. If they must address you a second time, you will be asked to leave the event with no refund given.

If your group is larger than 7, please inquiry about private tastings. Our public cheese classes are ideal for 1-7 people.

The Cheese House is BYOB (bring your own beverage). You can bring your own or order our selected wine pairings.

Order online today and add “Wine for Cheese Class on (Date)” into the order notes. We’ll have your order ready at the Pickup Window behind the shop just before class starts.

Bubbles are always our favorite pairing with cheese, including sparkling water, sodas, ciders, beer, and sparkling wines. Looking for specific wine pairings? A nice Sauvignon Blanc or light bodied red such as a Pinot Noir are always wonderful options!

In order to avoid product damage and reduced quality, we do not ship cheese event plates or cheese trays at this time.

Please check out our collections and on demand classes that are designed to survive the rigors of shipping.

For your convenience and to avoid wait times in the Cheese Shop, online orders should be picked up at our Pickup Window, located directly behind our cheese shop in the alley between Uncle Nicky’s and Julio’s. To avoid congestion, please do not pick up in the Cheese Shop.

Please plan to pick up your tray at your selected pickup time, noting we have a designated pickup window open daily from 11am-7pm.
