Chimney Rock

Our fall seasonal cheese, Chimney Rock, starts with organic Holstein milk from John and Karen Taylor's Bivalve Dairy in Point Reyes. The rich bloomy rind cheese is spritzed with wine  then dusted with ground organic shiitake mushrooms, summer savory and black pepper. The result is a beautiful cheese that offers piquant, earthy flavors balanced by high notes of orange blossom and apricot.

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