Close enough to catch the cooling fog of the Pacific Ocean, Bellwether Farms in Sonoma County, California, can state with pride that their cheeses grace the tables of some of the finest restaurants across the country.
Studded with whole peppercorns, Pepato is a raw, semi-soft sheep milk cheese with a flaky yet creamy consistency. After being aged for two to three months, Pepato is salty and tangy with a piquant sweetness.
