Picked up a couple bottles of NOTL wine and found this shop that prepared us a fabulous Charcuterie and cheese platter. Staff was knowledgeable and made great recommendations. We enjoyed it all by the fireplace in our suite.

Walked in and met by very friendly and knowledgeable owner who was able to interpret our vague description of what we liked to a delicious local cheese. He and his wife are lovely people that I was more than happy to patronize. Everything was packaged...More
