Willow Creek Winery cheese

Few national holidays are as big as June 4, National Cheese Day, which falls on a Monday this year. While some may choose to celebrate with a specialty grilled cheese from Grilled Cheese & Crab Cake Co., a cheesy pasta from Assaggio! or maybe a burger slathered in mac ‘n cheese from Joseph’s at Renault, we’re going back to basics for National Cheese Day with a charcuterie board from Willow Creek Winery that will make you truly appreciate the art of cheese.

Though cheese isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Willow Creek Winery, the specialty cheeses at the gorgeous West Cape May tasting room are second to none. Options like Truffle Tremor Goat cheese, Old Quebec cheddar and Noord guda are available on the international cheese menu. Enjoy a 3-ounce portion served with marinated olives, nuts and grapes, or opt for the Wilde Cock Cheese Board Combo ($27), where you can choose any three of the specialty cheeses or imported meats, which are served with olives, nuts and grapes, along with sliced baguette with spiced olive oil for dipping and figs. It’s classy, filling and oh, so tasty.

Located at 160-168 Stevens St., West Cape May. Go to WillowCreekWineryCapeMay.com.
