New Cheese Classes on the Calendar

We've just announced some great new cheese classes...check them out! Pre-enrollment is required and we've already had a good response so sign up soon if you're interested. Send us an email (, call the shop (619.683.2306) or stop in soon.

The Wild, Wild West – Wines & Cheeses from California, Oregon & Washington
Wednesday, March 11th, 6:30pm@ Taste$45
We’re excited to present our first exploration of the excellent wines and cheeses from the states of California, Oregon and Washington – aka The Wild, Wild West! Join us as we take a 90-minute tour of our favorite wines and cheeses from this fertile region. We’ll sample a variety of wines, and discover the variations – some subtle, some not so subtle – in wines, some stylistic, some terroir-based. We’ll pair the wines with incredible cheeses from small, independent producers from each of the three states.

The History of IPA with Hamilton's Tavern & Green Flash Brewing
Tuesday, March 24th 6:30pm@ Taste$40
Join us as we welcome two of San Diego's beer icons and explore the history of the beer style that put San Diego on the beer map - IPA (India Pale Ale). We're excited to welcome Scot Blair, proprietor of beer mecca Hamilton's Tavern and Chuck Silva, award-winning brewer from Green Flash Brewing. They'll be joined by our favorite cheese monger George Palmer as they take us through a guided tour of IPA's then and now, paired with some of our favorite artisan cheeses. This class is offered for one night only - space is very limited.

Cheese & Wine On a Dime
Wednesday, April 15th, 6:30pm
@ Taste $35
April 15th is Tax Day so we thought it was a good time to explore cheeses and wines that stretch your dollar further. We’ll sample a range of wines from lesser-known regions like Argentina, Chile and others offering excellent wine values. Our favorite cheese monger, George Palmer will dig Taste’s selection of artisan cheeses to create pairings that are as easy on the budget as they are on the palate. And for this special class, we’ve knocked $10 off the enrollment fee…and no taxes required.
