A cheese factory just off the main square. My husband went in to grab something to go in our pack as we bicycled to the nearby wineries. I waited outside. He came back with an asiago and smoked gouda. Both good. The cheese factory on...More

We've been fans of Vella's hard jack cheese ever since finding it in a market some years ago. It's a product of a small cheese factory in Sonoma where you can visit and taste. The staff is wonderfully friendly and few tasters will leave without...More

This place is absolutely amazing! How I wish it was near my house. They'll let you sample any cheese you want and cut to your size preference. Great spot to buy an array of cheeses, spreads, olives, and meats! Very affordable as well. This was...More

Wonderful place to taste and buy cheese. The Dry Jack is fantastic and my favorite. Don't confuse this place with the Sonoma Cheese store right in the square. Vella is a cheese boutique that makes quality cheese. It is small and the people who work...More

A little off the beaten path but well worth the effort to find. Multiple cheese options to choose from. Goes great with the Bread you buy at the Basque Bakery on the square.

Wonderful small family owned cheese company. Cheeses made from goat and sheep milk. Many different cheeses to taste and take home, which of course we did!

Fabulous local cheese! It's worth the walk off the square. Get some Toma or aged Jack or Brie. I can't get enough cheese. Plus they let you taste whatever you are interested in purchasing. Go ahead..buy some great cheese.
