Chimney Rock

Chimney Rock, our Fall-to-Winter seasonal cheese, honors the cooler days of fall. The cheese is washed in wine and covered in dried organic Pioppini and Shiitake mushrooms from Far West Fungi, organic savory from Allstar Organics and a dusting of Black Pepper. As with all of our seasonal cheeses, Chimney Rock is made with organic cow's milk from John Taverna's Chileno Valley Jersey Dairy, which offers rich notes of butter and a hint of brightness.

Chimney Rock is named for one of the most spectacular hikes in all of Point Reyes (our hometown), located at the end of a land bridge that's surrounded by lush meadows and cool breezes.
