This Week's Warehouse Tasting: Riesling Bath Edition

You could call what happens to us at the bar every day at 5pm a Riesling bath and we have a valid reason for this. It is very hot outside.

One of our featured cheeses this week also enjoys a good wine bath (honestly, who wouldn't?). It's the Pierce Pt. from Cowgirl Creamery. It's made in California using organic whole Jersey milk from John Taverna's Chileno Valley Dairy. Then, the cheese is spritzed with organic white wine and coated in dried coastal herbs. This summer's mixture includes local field flowers, calendula, chamomile and Thai basil. Pierce Pt. is delicious: as the Cowgirls describe it, the cheese is "semi-firm yet creamy, complex yet never overpowering." Just like we like our men (that joke had to be made at some point).

We'll also have Green's Creek Gruyere, more Del Cielo from Pure Luck Dairy and the show-stopping blue, Tilston Point from Hook's Cheese.
