This Week's Tasting Plate: Video Made the Goat Cheese Star

We started carrying cheese from Latte Da Dairy not too long ago, but it was the hard-nosed investigative journalists at CBS that discovered the goat cheese maker back in March. You can watch their video report on vet-turned-cheesemaker Anne Jones and her little pack of loyal goats here. You can purchase some Latte Da Gouda at the shop this weekend.

We'll also be featuring Green Hill from Sweetgrass Dairy, Pt. Reyes Blue and Meadow Creek Grayson, which is reminiscent of an Italian Taleggio but beefier. The beefier the better, as we say at the Dairymaids. Except when you're talking Vinho Verde, which we will also be sampling this weekend and which is decidedly not beefy. We're not crazy. "Vinho verde," of course, translates to "green wine" in deference to its youth and the Arca Nova goes for only $9. July heat, $9 Portguese wine, tastes of fresh apple...stop us when we get close.
