The cheese factory has a lovely shop selling cheese and a variety of other foodstuffs. Order a sandwich to your own specification and wander around with a pager which tells you when your order is ready to collect. Unless you are really hungry share a sandwich-they are very generous.

Love their fresh jalapeno pepperjack along with their signature dry jack cheese. Would recommend stopping by at the beginning of your trip to buy some cheese/meats to picnic at a winery or munch on at the hotel.

We stopped in to try their cheese and were delighted! They make several varieties of cheese and one type is made only by them. They also have several imported cheeses. You can taste any of the cheese they make on site. Friendly and informative about what they make. A great place to pick up some great cheese for a picnic... More

Great little shop around the corner from an overpriced cheese shop. U can try whatever kind that they have. And it's very reasonably priced and they use their own cows milk. Pretty awesome. Highly recommend the Rosemary jack.

This is a great little shop around the corner from way more expensive cheese stores… Not really so much a tourist attraction, but a really really good cheese shop! I had no idea there were so many wonderful varieties of Monterey Jack cheese! I brought a bunch home with me it was so good!!

The cheese is incredible. We got cheese for the days in Sonoma so we could enjoy it by the pool. There is a small selection of meats as well but the fresh cheese at an good price is why you stop.

We went as part of a bike tour- see that review separately- and found it interesting. Haven't visited a cheese factory and being a lover a cheese, it fit in with our wine vacation. Some yummy cheese and good prices. Enjoy for the remainder of your trip with a good bottle before dinner.. As we are doing right now... Tip-... More
