This week we picked up some of Fiscalini Cheese’s Traditional Bandage-Wrapped Cheddar. This cheese has won more awards than you can count, including “Best Farmhouse Cheese in America.” 

Cheddar cheese originated in the village of Cheddar in England. Yes, there’s a place called Cheddar Village. We can only dream of living there! While it ages, this cheese is wrapped in cheesecloth (which is how it gets its name). It’s a tad crumbly, and has a nice delicate smoky flavor to it. You can eat it with pretty much anything!

Fiscalini Cheese has the following pairing suggestions:


  • Red Ale
  • German Wheat
  • Amber Ale


  • Green Apples
  • Blueberry Granola
  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Mild Salami


  • Pinot Gris
  • Pinot Blanc
  • Chardonnay

You can find Fiscalini Cheese‘s Traditional Cheddar at your local cheese shop.  Or, stop by their farm in Modesto, see the cows, and pick up cheese at their creamery.  It’s on the Central Valley Cheese Trail.
