Mt. Townsend Creamery at Oympic Cellars

We will host Mt. Townsend Creamery during our Wine & Cheese Tour, April 17 and 18 from 11-6 p.m.

As I write these daily blog/emails to share information, funny cheese videos and to immerse you in Cheese, Wine and All That’s Local… I find myself craving anything cheese. (You think?!)

Last night I walked into Sunny Farms (a local country-style grocery store) and instead of heading straight to the cookies, I made a beeline for the cheese, opened a single package of string cheese and inhaled it while waiting at the deli counter.

Well, you know, a ‘Working Girl’ can get mighty hungry and the string cheese was a way better choice then standing there noshing on a large wedge of cheddar or brie.

If "cheese" is also on your mind, not to worry. We've got you covered. Join us and all you have to do is.... Sample, taste, sip, taste, sample taste, sip, taste, sample, taste, sip, sip, taste (Got the hang of it?)

Mt. Townsend will have all their cheeses available for sale and sampling. Featured “wine paired” cheeses will be the Cirrus with our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon and the Washed Rind Tomme with our 2006 Syrah.

Below is a couple of YouTube Videos on Mt. Townsend owners and cheeses. After watching you’ll understand why we’re so excited to have their cheeses at Olympic Cellars,

Enjoy, Kathy

Cirrus, a Pacific Northwest Camembert, is inspired by the small thin white clouds that hang over the Olympic Mountains, yet is rooted in the tradition of French cheese making. The white mold covering its exterior makes Cirrus come alive with an abundance of flavor as it ages. It is ripened four weeks to an indulgent soft texture with rick, butter flavor. It is a must for those who want to experience camembert as it was meant to be.

Washed Rind Tomme made in the style of Tomme’s from the French Pyrenees this cheese similar to Havarti or Cheddar. A ripe pungent flavor is complimented by the butter and nutty finish.
