Cypress Grove
Truffle Tremor

$34.99/LB
Pioneering American Cheesemaker Mary Keehn of Humboldt County, CA has been making a great, pasteurized goat cheese for years. But why stop with Humboldt Fog when you can a handful of black truffles to the mix and make people tremor? We lust after this cheese's tangy, lactic, cakey-textured paste, heady with fungal earthiness . Time in Murray's caves ensures proper ripening without the bitter soapiness this cheese can suffer from when improperly stored. To drink? Cherry-tobacco Pinot Noir make us quiver with delight.

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.

Meet The Maker

Mary Keehn started raising goats in the 1970s as a source for healthy milk, but in practically no time she was winning awards and gaining recognition as one of the top Alpine dairy goat breeders in the United States. Talent for goat breeding necessitates talent for milk-using, and before long Mary started dabbling in cheese making. No surprise, she was a natural at that, too, and in 1983 she started Cypress Grove Chevre.

Eventually her prize-winning herd was sold so that Keehn could focus her energy on making cheese. Today the milk comes from local sustainable farms that partner with Cypress Grove to ensure highest quality milk is produced for the cheese. Cypress Grove’s success has revitalized the farming community by creating opportunities for small dairies, like Keehn’s, to grow.
