“Great find in Sonoma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

The clerk at our inn told us about this place as she saw us unloading our cheeses from Whole Foods. So we headed there the next day. Great variety of cheeses all very fresh and reasonably priced. Love them and some of them are vacuum sealed and didn't require refrigeration so we were able to pack then and bring them home as souvenirs. Wine and cheese went over big upon our return home. We intend to order more cheese online and have it shipped to us at home, Hopefully it wull arrive with our wine club selections.

“Delicious Cheeses to Pair with Your Wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Vella Cheese company should be on any wine country visitor's itinerary. Just two blocks off The Plaza in Sonoma, Vella cheese produces several wonderful varieties of aged jack cheese. This is jack cheese like no other. They age the cheese so it develops into a very firm cheese with a nutty character...a perfect pairing for any red wine. It keeps well in the refridgerator and I always keep it on hand to introduce to guests. The team in the tasting room will provide you with generous portions to help you choose your favorite. You'll be glad you stopped in! Cheers.

“Great Picnic”

The Vella Cheese Company has great cheese and good salami. We picked up some for a picnic at Muir Woods and it was excellent. The staff was very courteous and helped us with everything. Great local shop.

“Excellent cheese!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Great cheese with good customer service at the front desk in this small wine shop. Try their toma, which is a soft young cheese, and their garlic Monterey Jack cheese is as garlicky as it can get, delicious!
