We love sharing our hand-selected wine collection. Join us in the shop every Saturday at the cheese case from 11-5 for a tasting of wines from across our collection. Sometimes it's a new vintage of an old favorite, sometimes it's something we think will pair exceptionally well with a new cheese, and sometimes it's just something that we found that we think is particularly interesting. All friends of legal sipping age are welcome to participate in this free tasting activity. Chester River Wine & Cheese Co.
