Terroir Exchange a Success: lineup of cheeses in attendance

Hosted by Culture and held in downtown Napa’s Taste at Oxbow, French and California cheesemakers gathered for the second annual Terroir Exchange.

In attendance were 8 makers from California and 6 from France, bringing over 30 different cheeses to sample.

Bay area cheese lovers descended on the Culture event to eat lots of cheese, drink Napa wines from Mahoney and Waterstone Vineyards, talk to cheesemakers, and meet the folks behind culture magazine, the French Cheese Club and the Oxbow Cheese Merchant.

A great time was had by all!

Keep posted for more of these around the country.
