We bought cheese at Vella to have with wines purchased in the Sonoma Valley/Dry Creek area. Their Jacks are what this company is all about. They sell a new Jack, one about a year old and then the jewel, a 3 year old jack which seems like a chrystaline aged gouda or cheddar. All are delicious in their own characterful way. They also make a "toma" not the creamy soft super rich Italian version, but very good non-the-less. A couple other cheeses are available (not made by Vella) but reasonably good including a tasty blue. The shop also sells olives and crackers. This is a local alternative to the cheese shop on Sonoma Square itself - which has a much more wide ranging selection
of cheeses as well as other gourmet treats.

This is by far the best pepper jack I have ever tasted. Not the dry type jack we have grown accustomed to, this jack is smooth and creamy with plenty of HEAT. Great habenero flavor

My daughter wanted a cheese similar to aged gouda and we found a cheese here that they make very close to it. I would say a bit pricey, but very well worth it.

Had an excellent time dropping in at the Vella cheese company. The staff were extremely nice and you can sample any of the cheeses that they produce. Definitely try the dry jack when you visit, a unique and delicious cheese. Prices seemed extremely reasonable and the staff were willing to cut smaller slices to purchase if the items pre-cut were too big. Will definitely visit again next time I am in Sonoma

The tour was interesting and the cheeses delicious. Able to by cheese at wholesale prices. We stocked up with cheeses to go with all of the wines we acquired.
