FRESH CHEESES FOR SPRING

Our dairies follow traditional farming practices with small herds that give birth in the spring, and the farmers use this prized new milk for cheesemaking (after the calves and lambs have had their fill, of course). The taste is unparalleled: now that the cows, goats, and sheep are back out to pasture, you can taste the tangy, herbaceous notes of the fresh grass, clover, and hay that the animals eat. Check out our cheesemonger's picks for the season!

NONNO NANNI
Soft and spreadable, we specially source Nonno Nanni's traditional Italian fresh cheeses from Veneto. Pair picks like Squaquerello, a particularly soft and creamy cheese, with a fresh salad and piadina (and your favorite Italian wines, of course).

MARCELLI FORMAGGI
Hailing from the hills of Abruzzo, the Marcelli family makes only farmstead-style cheeses using the milk from their family's herds of sheep and goats. Don't miss their Primo Sale: meaning "first salt," this traditional-style sheep's milk cheese has only been salted one time during its maturation period, for a soft texture and floral and earthy flavor.

BLAKESVILLE CREAMERY
A local gem, Blakesville Creamery launched their farmstead in 2020, led by Head Cheesemaker Veronica Pedraza. With a keen focus on healthy, happy herds, their goat's milk cheeses are exceptional: small-batch, delicate, and creamy. Look out for unique picks like After Glow, a goat cheese washed with New Glarus Belgian Red Ale, with a delicate wrinkled rind and bold, grassy interior.

PAIR WITH THE PERFECT SALAMI

What goes best with the creamy, tangy flavors of Spring cheeses? Look for these fatty, rich salami to complement your cheese board picks.

CASELLA'S
Founded by acclaimed Tuscan chef Cesare Casella, this line of salumi is inspired by Chef Casella's own experience of assisting the norcini, or old school countryside butchers, during his youth. Try the Cacciatorini Dolce, a hunter-style Piemontese salami that gets its bold flavor from paprika and Calabrian chilis.

FERRARINI
Founded in Emilia-Romagna in 1956, Ferrarini is still dedicated to producing their regional salumi the traditional way. Pick up the Salami Emilia to add your antipasto board, made from carefully selected pork cuts and naturally seasoned with salt, pepper, herbs, and spices, then left to cure slowly for a salty, complex flavor.

DON'T FORGET THE VINO!

Up to 25% OFF natural, biodynamic, and organic wines

The bright colors and flavors of the season pair perfectly with the unfiltered, unaltered taste profiles of organic, natural, and biodynamic wines – from fresh white wines perfect for in-season seafood to orange wines with roast pork or peak produce like artichokes and asparagus, to light and bright reds that go with just about anything.
