Welcome to the California Artisan Cheese Guild!
CELEBRATING THE QUALITY AND DIVERSITY OF ARTISAN CHEESE PRODUCED IN CALIFORNIA
THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS, OUTREACH AND EDUCATION
ARTISAN CHEESE EVENTS
Raise a glass to our award-winning Calfornia cheesemakers at this very special, exclusive afternoon on the farm!
We’ll kick off the afternoon with a farm tour of the scenic Giacomini Dairy, home of Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese. You’ll meet the cows in their closed Holstein herd and learn about the history of the family, the farm, and agriculture in this beautiful region.
Following the tour, you’ll head inside to The Fork, the farm’s on-site culinary education center, for a fun and lively cheese and cocktails pairing session in collaboration with Griffo Distillery. Enjoy an intimate, focused cheese tasting full of the rich history and stories behind each as told by the cheesemakers and owners themselves alongside the original and classic cocktails that love them. You’ll meet the founders and artisans behind some of California’s most esteemed creameries including Beehive Cheese, Bivalve Dairy, Cowgirl Creamery, Cypress Grove, Nicasio Valley Cheese Company, Pedrozo Dairy & Cheese Co., Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese, Toluma Farms and Tomales Farmstead Creamery and Wm. Cofield Cheesemakers. The speakers will present their cheeses and provide insight on their company’s place in the American cheese renaissance and discuss why California has such a compelling cheesescape. Cheers to that!
All ticket proceeds benefit the California Artisan Cheese Guild, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting artisan cheesemakers in the state of California.
There is absolutely no one, apart from yourself, who can prevent you, in the middle of the night, from sneaking down to tidy up the edges of that hunk of cheese at the back of the fridge.
