  • This be the best! Short walk from Sonoma Plaza, do yourself a favor and stroll over. Wine tasting over-rated...come to Sonoma for the cheese! 
  • Almost every time we visit wine country we visit Vella Cheese. We love the Dry Jack cheeses. If you visit the cheese factory in Sonoma, the cost of the cheese is about half of what you would pay when ...  more »
  • Best ever jack cheese--especially the softer version off the wheel. Samples of all available. Winner of awards. Just off the main square. Try the flavored cheeses (pesto, rosemary, etc.) and their che...  more »

  • Amazing cheese for an incredible price. Award winning homemade Monterey Jack, Cheddar and Asiago cheeses at a variety of ages, as well as some imports. Friendly staff who let you sample any cheese on the board.
  • Some of the best cheese I have had in the area. Better than some of the high-end cheeses in grocery stores. They will let you sample all the different varieties the dry Jack and habanero are my favorite! Do yourself a favor and pick up some cheeses from here to take on your wine tasting tour.
  • My wife and I have been coming here for 11 years since we found it on our honeymoon. We love this cheese and stop by whenever we are down this way. The tasting counter is staffed by friendly people to guid you through your cheese choices. You owe it to yourself to trek down the road a few blocks and find this place.
  • Everytime I'm in Sonoma I bring back a giant bag for my entire family. Best cheese I've ever eaten outside of France.
  • The best cheese in Sonoma, it's as simple as that. Real cheese, not the kind you get pre-sliced and wrapped in cellophane. All the traditional Jack cheeses (this is Sonoma after all) as well as cheddar, but what sets them apart is their Italian cheeses. Try the Toma, a semi-soft with a buttery consistency that melts in your mouth and makes you say "What do yo mean I ate the entire wedge by myself?" Oh, and by the way you'll get this handcrafted, artisan cheese for less than what you pay for the crap your local mega mart carries.
