A cheese class would make a great gift, or a fun night out with friends, or come alone and meet other cheese folks. Classes include tastings of two wines and 8+ cheeses. Space is limited to 12 people, paid in advance either by phone, or at the shop, or online on this page. Please note - if you were given a gift certificate for a 101 please call the shop directly at 941 951 7860 and we will add your name to a class that has spaces and works with your schedule.
The cheese classes are taught by our trained and enthusiastic cheese mongers.
CHEESE CLASSES -
What is Cheese 101? – We take you through 8+ cheeses, two wines. There’ll be a little bit of milk science, cheesemaker stories, and a lot of fun. From fresh to blue, and we’ll introduce you to our most favorite pairings and wine to complement the cheese.

FINE PRINT - please read !! - By the day of the class we have already ordered and prepared the cheese and if the class is sold out we will have turned others away who might have taken your spot. Spots are non refundable if you cancel. We can move you into a future class only if you call us 72 hours before the class. We regret that as a small business we must enforce this cancellation policy. Thank you for understanding.
We also offer private classes and small gatherings of 10 - 14 people. Private events start at $65 + per person depending on the event, plus tax and a 20% tip on that evening to the server. We require a 50% down payment due on reservation with the remaining 50% 10 days prior to the event. We regret that we are unable to give refunds, but prior to 72 hours before the event we will be able to move or reschedule your party.
