The Lavender Ridge Cheese Market features a selection of extraordinary specialty cheeses to pair with our handcrafted artisan wines. We support local Artisan Cheese makers and fine cheese makers world wide.
In our tasting room, we offer the opportunity to pair our cheeses with our Rhone Wines. Learn how to enhance your wine enjoyment with remarkable food and cheese pairings with the help of our professional staff. Our market is guided by cheesemonger, Judy Creighton. Judy is a core instructor at the Cheese School of San Francisco and C'est Le Cheese in Sacramento. She is a columnist in the Sierra Lodestar and known locally as "The Calaveras Cheese Lady."
Our cheese case is full of unique cheeses, exciting condiments, and charcuterie ready to enjoy for a picnic in nearby Murphys Community Park or to serve a cheese plate in your hotel, cabin, or home. Lavender Ridge staff can help you with your choices. Private Cheese and Wine Pairing Classes are held by appointment at the tasting room. Ask about our current availability at 209.728.2441.
