Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit
Crisp and acidic with light minerality. You may smell stone fruit, apples, pear, quince, even some fresh herbs.
Pair with: Tangy Loire Valley goat cheese to bring out crisp, mineral qualities in both. Something like Selles-sur-Cher will work perfectly!
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.
They say Haystack founder Jim Schott “doesn’t do anything halfway,” which may explain how an interest in goats became a 5000 square foot creamery and full scale cheesemaking operation in just over two decades. Today Haystack Mountain gets high-quality milk from local goat dairies and through a special partnership with Skyline Correctional Center where minimum-security inmates care for a herd of goats. The creamery is located in Longmont, Colorado and contains special aging facilities where the signature Haystack Peak can mature. Despite the growth spurts over the years, Haystack Mountain’s cheese is still always made by hand in small batches.
