The Wedge returns for the holidays with its new in-home virtual cheese tasting, The Winter Wedge, on Saturday, December 26. Since The Wedge had to be cancelled this past fall, the organizers are bringing a huge assortment of cheese for an in-home tasting that will culminate with a virtual tasting that is perfect to explore your own cheese and beer pairings.

The Winter Wedge is an in-home tasting kit that includes 13 unique Oregon cheeses, Mt. Hope Farms jam, Effie’s Homemade Crackers, chocolate truffles from Whole Foods, and DriftWest Sparkling Water Kefir in a reusable insulated tote.

Join The Wedge December 26 at 5pm on Facebook Live via Zoom to learn more about the cheeses and cheesemakers, taste through a vertical of aged Tillamook white cheddars (aged 3, 5, and 10 years!), find your perfect pairings, and participate in a live raffle. And if you miss the live discussion, it will be recorded and can be accessed later to view at your own leisure.
