Curds and Wine officially opened our doors on November 11, 2010. Many thanks to all of our wonderful customers that have come in these past three years! We are looking forward to many more with you. We are also always happy to meet new winemakers and cheesemakers and help them on their way to enjoying the wonderful worlds of wine and cheese. We have some very exciting new classes and other events planned for the upcoming months, stay tuned!
The Holiday Season is here! Be sure to reserve your 2014 Release Limited Edition and Restricted Quantity wine kits, see details below. We also have some great Black Friday online and Small Business Saturday in-store specials to get you started on your holiday shopping. In addition, we are offering some very Special Holiday Winemaking Gift Certificates for a limited time - these are a great bargain, and a spectacular gift to give to anyone that loves wine!
Please note our new store hours to better serve you! Starting Tuesday November 5th we will be open Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 6 pm, Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 5 pm.
Although we are closed on Black Friday, we are offering a FREE Curds and Wine t-shirt for all item orders of $100 or more* and a $25 gift certificate for item purchases of $200 or more* (and still includes a free t-shirt)! This offer applies to online item purchases on Friday 11/29/13 only. We are then offering the same specials for in-store purchases on Small Business Saturday 11/30/13! A great bonus to stock up on winemaking and cheesemaking gifts for the holidays.
To take advantage of the Black Friday online order, simply place your order online and in the notes please let us know what size t-shirt you would like; our shirts do run a little small. We will automatically send you a gift certificate code for qualifying purchases.

Join us at Curds and Wine to learn how easy and rewarding it is to make your own cheeses at home! At this class you will learn the fundamental processes behind fresh cheesemaking as well as the techniques for making pressed cheeses and aged cheeses such as cheddar, gouda, and camembert. We will make fromage blanc, ricotta, and queso fresco, and demonstrate the processes involved in making feta, swiss-style cheeses and mold-ripened cheeses such as camembert/brie-style and blue cheeses. We will have samples of the various styles of cheeses you can make at home from Venissimo, as well as other refreshments. Finally, you will receive a packet with a recipe booklet to make the cheeses from the class as well as basic supplies to get you started with your cheesemaking. You will also receive a 10% discount on any purchase in the shop following the class. Class size is limited to 15 participants. Ticket holders ONLY admitted to class.
