From Moroccan olives and Spanish quince paste to rare cheeses from remote regions in Europe, our cheese selection promises to deliver the finest in world fare.

Here are a few hand selected favorites from our staff:

Rosso Di Langa - The combination of cow and sheep milk creates a unique flavour – rich and luscious with a mouth-filling creaminess. The texture is incredibly smooth and creamy. Rosso di Langa has a very mild washed rind, with only a hint of pungency coming from the rosy orange rind. 

La  Tur - From the great wine region of Piemonte comes La Tur: a dense, creamy blend of pasteurized cow, goat and sheep milk. Oozing around the perimeter with a moist, cakey, palette-coating paste, its flavor is earthy and full. 

Le Châtelain - This delicious cow's milk cheese typically has a soft, white, bloomy rind, a luxurious ivory paste and a rich, buttery flavor. Pair it with a full-bodied red wine like Cabernet. You can also enjoy it with Chardonnay, and sparkling wines.
