Shepherd's Way Farm Big Woods Blue

$45.00/Lb


The creamy nature of sheep’s milk is front and center in this rindless blue. Some blue cheeses like to hit you over the head with the spicy notes that come from the bluing process; Big Woods is far more subtle, with the focus placed more on the milk quality. It’s a blue cheese that will satisfy a blue skeptic. But it will also win over legitimate blue cheese lovers; in fact, it already has—Big Woods Blue has earned honors at ACS on multiple occasions.

Pour a glass of...
  • Chianti

    Chianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.

    Pair with: An herb-crusted cheese like Hudson Flower or a Tuscan Pecorino.

  • Lagers and Kolsch

    Lager, Dunkel, Schwarz, Pilsner, Kolsch Ale

    Lagers run the gamut from crisp, pale Pilsners to dark-malted Dunkels and Märzens. Flavors are typically approachable and mellow, a delicate balance of toasted bread, gentle sweetness, and mild hop bitterness for structure.
    Pair with: Almost any firm, mild cheese like Tomme de Savoie or Landaff Creamery Landaff.


  • Pinot Grigio

    A lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.

    Pair with: Creamy goat or mixed milk cheese with a crisp acidic element. La Tur or Brunet are great alongside the fruit-tart flavors of the wine.
