At Arrowine, we understand cheese like we understand wine – it’s all about relationships and passion. We support both the traditional European cheesemakers and the New World artisans who create delicious cheese and uphold this wonderful and important craft and specialize in artisanal cheese to meet your culinary needs. In fact, our own Perry Soulos was named #1 Cheesemonger in the country, winning the 2014 Cheesemonger Invitational.
Artisanal cheese is made by hand in small quantities using traditional techniques. The cheese is crafted by hardworking artisans and farmers who are either continuing a longstanding tradition or are a part of a modern revival of cheesemaking. One type of artisanal cheese that we like to carry is known as farmstead cheese. Farmstead means the cheese is made traditionally with milk from the producer’s own herds of cows, sheep and/or goats. We understand that it’s hard to find good cheese at a competitive price these days. Everything seems to be mass produced and void of unique character. You don’t even have to shred cheese anymore! On the upside, cheese consumption by Americans has been growing in leaps and bounds. In fact, it is estimated that 10% of all cheese consumed by Americans today is artisanal.
We love cheese and would like to share our enthusiasm with you! Let us help you find the perfect cheese or collection of cheeses for your next meal or special occasion.
