Cheese Department

Lille BebeOur cheese department is filled with local, artisanal, and unique cheeses, from handmade burrata to sheep's milk cheese to Shelburne Farms aged cheddar. Each month, we have a "Cave to Coop" special, highlighting and promoting a local cheese and wine pairings. Keep an eye out for this sign in our Beer and Wine Department:

Don't know which cheese to pair with your bread or wine? As always, our Cheese Department staff would be happy to help you choose!

  • Coulommiers-style, bloomy, delicate and edible rind
  • Made with pasteurized cows' milk
  • Supple paste core surrounded by rich, creamy body
  • Mushroom nuances with notes of nut and butter. The rind lends a salty bite
  • Pairs well with rich, earthy, full-bodied reds like Brotte La Grivelière Côtes du Rhône; citrusy French wines with good minerality like Domaine Fournier Sauvignon Blanc; and sparkling wine like Bellafina Prosecco
