“A typical beach town wine and cheese shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Lovely folks here, but as it turns out the wine they recommended was only ok. Still, they were happy to spend time and had a nice local selection.

“Goodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Pick up cheeses, chocolates, wine, and other treats for your perfect meal. This lovely store carries Rustic Bakery items (try the parmesan cheese coins and keylime cookies) but is not really a restaurant as much as a store with yummy items for a picnic or take-out. There is also wine tasting available during the hours of the store.

“Nice stop for wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The staff at the shop were extremely helpful. Wine prices felt a little steep to me, but I guess I'm a cheapskate. A fair choice of cheeses also--although we did not try any.

“A picnic basket treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We visited the Wine and Cheese Shop on April 21st. It was our first time in the shop and we found it very well stocked with lots of great wines, cheeses, and other fun picnic type items, They had several cheeses out to sample after we tasted a few wines, When we chose the wine we liked, it was nice to pair it with the various cheese samples. The young lady who helped us was very kind and informative,

We will definately shop for our picnic there on our next trip!

“An Oasis in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Late afternoon in Half Moon Bay is the perfect time to visit this shop with a superb wine selection and cheeses galore. A helpful staff and intimate surrounding make this a great stop.
