The Original Gourmet Cheese Club delivers an exciting journey through the vast world of cheese by delivering a wide variety of traditional farmhouse and artisan cheeses, made from quality, natural ingredients.
Enjoy traditional old-world classics like authentic Brie sourced from the Île-de-France, north of Paris, Piave Vecchio from the Dolomites region of the Italian Alps, and Leicester from English farms with small herds of pedigree Holstein cows.
Indulge also in highly-acclaimed handmade cheeses from America’s finest artisan producers, like Sartori Reserve Espresso BellaVitano – Gold Medal winner at both the World Cheese Awards and the International Cheese Awards, Beehive Promontory – 1st Place winner at the American Cheese Society, and Point Reyes Toma – Gold Medal winner at the California State Fair and 1st Place at the American Cheese Society.
Our monthly In Pursuit of Cheese newsletter, included in each shipment, offers detailed tasting notes, cheese profiles, cheesemaker histories, and serving suggestions.
Our buyers have traveled internationally to work directly with farmhouse cheesemakers to refine specific batches, have been recognized by and judged at national competitions, and are widely respected among their peers. They’ve tended cheese caves, washing rinds, rotating wheels, and recording daily tasting notes to ensure that our cheeses are served at their peak flavor profiles.
Our strictly controlled cheese “cave” optimizes temperature, light and humidity to ensure featured selections are properly stored, tended and matured. With over 25 years experience packing and shipping cheese, we’ll be sure to get your cheeses to you as each cheesemaker intended you to enjoy them.
Our product selection process is the cornerstone of our success and is what sets us apart from other artisanal cheese clubs. You will taste the difference. Here’s how we do it:
We work closely with Zingermans® to select our featured cheeses, which has been selling artisanal cheese since 1982 and was rated as one of 25 of the World’s Best Food Markets by Food & Wine magazine.
At the heart of all great food are great ingredients, and no one knows that better than Zingermans®. Together, we look for traditionally made, farmhouse and artisanal cheeses made from the best natural ingredients. Cheeses that you wouldn't easily find on your own.
To find the best, most traditional interpretations of a specific cheese, you have to buy each from its place of origin. We look for Manchego in the Dehesa plains in Spain’s central La Mancha region and Comté in the Franche-Comté region of France.
Many of our farmhouse producers not only have their own cows, they’ve named each of them. Their primary focus is to make the best product possible and often with the input of our tasting panel, they’ll experiment with slight changes to their process and raw ingredients to perfect their cheeses.
As a Christmas gift last year, my husband and I received a membership to the Cheese of the Month Club… To our delight, all of your cheeses have been utterly delectable… Thank you for such a high-quality product.

I’ve been passionate about artisanal cheese long before we founded this company over 20 years ago and have lead our selection process from the start. Each month, we select 3 different farmhouse cheeses made from pure and natural, quality ingredients.
Each selection is freshly cut just prior to shipping from wheels or blocks. It’s quite labor intensive and you’ll appreciate the difference it makes.
