    Cheeses have been chosen for sampling specifically to present a broad experience of what’s being made in the Valley today, from hard to soft, from goat, cow and sheep’s milk, to a variety of farm locations including Ulster and Dutchess Counties, up to Columbia and Delaware. You will be able to choose from a broad variety of cheeses, sample and select favorites, explore our recommended wine and cheese pairings with Whitecliff’s great wines, and come up with your own favorite combinations.
