Great wine and cheese selections with free tasting events. Really attentive staff. My husband and I go here frequently. It is a great stop for nice cheese and wine perhaps for a picnic.

CRW&C co. provides customers with a wide variety of products, yes, wonderful cheeses and boutique wines but many products savory and sweet that are not available anywhere else in the County. Knowledgable staff provides excellent advice and service.
