All across California – northern and southern – a number of dedicated artisans are shaking up old notions of taste and craftsmanship and setting new standards in innovation and sustainability. Jill Giacomini Basch, one of the owners of Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company, makers of the award-winning Point Reyes Original Blue, will take us on a tour of some of her favorite local artisanal cheeses. In addition, she’ll lead the class in understanding what defines a specialty cheese, an artisanal cheese and a farmstead cheese (yes, there is a difference!). She’ll also share her insight about the entirety of the process, from farm to table. We’ll enjoy Jill’s favorites with a selection of Lost Canyon’s cheese-friendly Syrahs. Join us on Saturday, January 19th from 4:00-6:00 PM at Lost Canyon Winery, 2102 Dennison Street, Oakland, CA 94606. Cost is $20 for non-wine club members, $10 for wine club members.
