Monteillet Fromagerie

While in Walla Walla, we stayed at the Monteillet Fromagerie, a cheese farm set in the middle of green rolling hills, blue skies, serene silence, and fresh clean air. The lovely and lively owners Joan and Jean Pierre Monteillet have been farming there for years, with Joan having grown in Walla Walla. Surrounding the house is the farm for the very sheep and goats that make the milk for their cheese. It take 5 gallons of goats milk to make this little round of cheese - yes, 5 gallons! So they were a good reminder of how much we should appreciate our food.

Larzac goat cheese with a thin line of vegetable ash through the center; their new line of sorbets including a Riesling infused sorbet - light, refereshing and perfect for summer, it's to die for.

The guest house we stayed at. One can rent the 3 bedroom house for a wonderful weekend.
