sonoma cheese factory
The iconic Sonoma Cheese Factory has been a purveyor of award-winning cheeses in the Sonoma Valley for 90 years.
Today, Sonoma Cheese Factory is continuing its rich legacy by offering superb cheeses, Sonoma County wines, BBQ from Primal Cuts Meats, and other locally-sourced goods.
Bay-area native James Ayers is Sonoma Cheese Factory’s resident fromager (that’s “Cheesemonger” in English). With over thirty years of experience, he brings passion and a wealth of expertise to Sonoma Cheese Factory.
James travels extensively throughout the United States and Europe to curate one of the most exciting cheese selections in the world. His genius is evident in his crafting of creative cheese and beverage pairings including his all-time favorite – brie and cider.
Primal Cuts Meats
Utilizing extended curing techniques, our signature sauce, and a beautiful presentation, Executive Chef Oscar Gomez has elevated the process of smoking and barbecuing quality meats which draws out maximum flavor in every bite.
We carry Primal Cuts Sandwiches to-go throughout the week and also feature their full menu at Sonoma’s Tuesday night Farmers Market
The awards followed. In 1987, Sonoma Cheese Factory became the first cheesemaker west of the Mississippi to win a medal in the United States Championship Cheese Contest in Wisconsin with their Sonoma Garlic Jack.
Today, Sonoma Cheese Factory resides in the same historic location it has since 1945 and is revitalizing its rich legacy in the Sonoma Valley and beyond.
