Tasting the Alps

Join Columbia Cheese for a tasting of Alpine goodness.  So sometimes people tell us that we bring in a similar style cheese.  And it's true.  We love Alpine cheese.  

Each dairy we work with creates a unique flavor profile.  On this evening, we are introducing new Alpine cheese from the Swiss canton of St. Gallen and the Italian region of Lombardia.

We'll start with Güntensberg & Schnebelhorn from Käserei Butschwil in St Gallen.  We will conduct an epic horizontal tasting against Scharfe Maxx, Maxx Extra, Challerhocker and Heublumen.

Then, we'll hone in on Lombardia, the cream-centric cradle of yumminess, and home of Ciresa.  We just got back from a visit there and want to share a couple of cheeses we fell in love with, discuss the history of the region, and provide a deeper understanding of the word Latteria in the farmstead and village dairy context.

To drink, I am pairing a sparkler and beer to cleanse the pallet and keep us eating.  (must be 21 to enter).

Sidenote, I dimmed the lights and bought a disco ball.
