Concord Cheese Shop: Cool Wines, Great Cheese & Much More
Almost four years ago, in March 2008, I wrote a brief review of The Concord Cheese Shop and now I am back with a longer update, as well as numerous photos of the store. In some respects, the store is the same, but that is largely a positive as what they did then still works very well now. In essence, they are a shop for cheese, wine, sandwiches and other assorted food products. They also carry mainly artisan and quality items, from boutique wines to unique cheeses. It is a gourmet mecca and I continue to highly recommend it.
To accompany your cheese, you will find plenty such as Iggy's breads, and a variety of pates, including wild boar, venison, salmon terrine and duck mousse. There are also numerous dips, such as cheddar blue, king crab creole and smoked sundried tomato. If you are having a party, this is an excellent place to stock up on what you need.
Turtle Creek and Still River Winery. I learned that Still River now produces a Sparkling Apple Ice Wine, though it is pricey at $16.99/187ml or $64.99/750ml. Wine lovers will have fun perusing the shelves for intriguing wines.
Food and wine lovers should definitely make a stop at the Concord Cheese Shop and explore the diverse bounty they have to offer.
