Cheese Platter - $20

Enjoy a selection of cheeses that were chosen to compliment the Benessere Vineyard wines.

Nicassio Foggy Morning- This fresh cow’s milk cheese from the Lafranchi family, in Marin County, was named the Best Fromage Blanc style cheese in North America and is 100% organic. Meant to be enjoyed immediately after it’s produced, this rindless cheese is a perfect compliment with crisp wines.

Prairie Breeze Cheddar- From Milton Creamery in Iowa, this white Cheddar is made from vegetarian rennet and is aged a minimum of 9 months. Made from pasteurized cow’s milk, it’s grassy, creamy, and mild with a slight crunch.

Piave Vecchio- Produced since 1960, this hard, pasteurized cow’s milk cheese is from Veneto, Italy. Aged for 12 months, this Parmesan-Reggiano style cheese is named for a nearby river, and is DOC protected.
