Cheese 101: The Seven Styles of Cheese
Let's gather for a Cheese and Wine Tasting in the historic 105-year old Antonelli's Cheese House. Named by Travel + Leisure Magazine as one of the top cheese shops in America, Antonelli's Cheese events have been lauded by Austin Monthly as one of the best things to do in Austin. Doors will open at 6:15 pm for mixing and mingling. (Should you arrive prior to 6:15 pm, please feel free to visit the Cheese Shop across the street for a complimentary tasting.) Throughout the course of the evening, we’ll taste four perfect cheese pairing bites, with two wine pairings. For each of the rounds, a cheesemonger will regale us with mini-stories of how the cheese is made, who made it, and why it’s special. The first tasting will start at 6:45 pm and we’ll conclude by 7:45 pm. Parking spaces are available in the Cheese House parking lot, behind the retail shop and nearby street parking on Avenue H, 43rd Street and Barrow Ave. Duval Street has parking available after 6 pm. Space is limited for the tasting, so please RSVP by June 18. (Note: The Cheese House is located at 500 Park Blvd, 78751; however, the parking lot is accessible off Duval Street.) Payment is due upon RSVP. Payment includes event, menu as described above, tax, tip and fees. Additional food and/or drinks on individual bills. Refunds for cancellations will be honored until 5pm 06/13/18 only. By signing up for this event, you agree to release this group and all involved from any and all liability. Located in central Austin, Antonelli's Cheese Shop includes a cut-to-order artisanal cheese and charcuterie shop, an events program hosting mor than 250 cheese tastings per year, a catering program offering cheese trays and artisanal lunch boxes, online sales of gifts and a monthly cheese club, and a wholesale program supplying over 175 Central Texas chefs and restaurants with artisanal goods. In addition to public cheese classes, events include private guided tastings for businesses (prospective clients, employee appreciations, and team building), as well as personal celebrations (weddings, showers, and birthdays). Antonelli's Cheese House is also an event venue available for unique experiences.
