Daniels Artisan Bonneville Cheese

Local, award-winning double cream cheese soaked in Syrah wine.

You can finally have your wine and eat it, too! This winning combination is brought to us by family-owned cheesemaker in Ferndale, Washington - Daniel’s Artisan. With an emphasis on farmstead cheesemaking principles, the cheese is crafted on their working farm, using milk from their cows, fed the grass raised on their land. Bonneville is a decadent double-cream wheel, washed in Côte Bonneville Syrah over several weeks as it reaches maturity. The extra cream is added to an already rich milk, lending to the fudgy texture and deep yellow color. A cheese to be enjoyed for every occasion! We’re selling each wedge for $8.99, while supplies last.
