Stinky Cheese and Dessert Wine Tasting
Sun, September 22, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$75.00
GDF founder, Sarah Hoffmann, and Joyce Angelos Walsh of TerraVox Vineyards share their passion for the enchanting partnership between funky cheeses and fine dessert wines. True cheese enthusiasts know that when it comes to stinky cheese, you can’t believe everything you smell. Come join us at the farm to sample a selection of aromatic washed-rind cheeses from highly respected American artisanal cheese makers. This event will feature five different selections of our favorite American artisanal washed rind cheeses (including our own, of course!) paired with five different styles of the finest European and American dessert wines. Our visiting wine expert, Joyce Angelos Walsh, will discuss the different dessert wines, where they come from, how they are made and why they are the perfect match for washed rind cheeses. Sarah Hoffmann will explain the remarkable sensory surprise that washed rind cheeses don’t taste at all like they smell! You’ll get to weigh in with your own assessment of this flavor adventure. We think your senses will be amazed- you may even become a convert to the cult of stinky cheese!
As a special, optional, addition to this tasting event Sarah will host a tour of the cheese making facility on the farm starting one hour before the start of the tasting (2 pm).
Our Cheese Tastings are unique, one of a kind, celebrations of locally made food and beverages. If you have additional questions about the classes please see the FAQs or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
