We stopped at the Vella Cheese Company during a bike tour and it was great! The variety of cheese is great and quality is superior. We actually brought sharp cheddar home with us to Wisconsin. Don't tell anyone!

This is an easy stop off the local bike path. Taste a few cheeses and then they will cut for you a piece as small or large as you wish. Since I was solo, a smaller portion was appreciated

We made our way to the Vella Cheese Company based on Trip Advisor reviews, and were 100% glad we did. The place is small -- this surprised us a little bit -- but the cheese is out of sight! You can taste whatever they have, which we did!, and then we bought a selection of four cheeses that we gave as a gift to friends who were in town celebrating their wedding. They enjoyed it as much as we did! If you like cheese and are in the area, do not miss the Vella Cheese Company!

We went to Sonoma just for the day to do some wine tasting. We decided to take the Segway tour with Sonoma Segway and at the end of the tour our guide, Hunt (Owner/operator) took us on a tour of the Vella Cheese Company. We got to go in the back of the factory and see the process involved in making cheese and then to the aging rooms where the vast amounts of cheese is store to age to perfection. We then proceeded to the shop in the from of the factory for some cheese tasting. It was amazing! They have some wonderful cheeses. They also sell some other items in the shop that we hadn't seen other places. Fruit infused balsamic vinegar (Mango, Passion Fruit and Raspberry) that looked incredible. Needless to say we brought home a variety of cheese and also some balsamic vinegar to try. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it.

The cheese here is the real deal - this place is off the east side of the square a block or two but worth the five minute walk through Sonoma. If you think Sonoma Jack Cheese is good, you MUST go here to find the original home.
