I've been seriously craving cheese, and now you do this? I have to go find some now.

PS - Point Reyes is *amazing* cheese! I don't know about the other two.

And thank goodness it wasn't fwWNZOLc7aEKE8 as first sucker. I can't even begin to know how to pronounce fwWNZOLc7aEKE8 let alone spell fwWNZOLc7aEKE8.

Watch it, not 3 lbs. That third one is 11oz.

And while not bad, I wasn't overly impressed with the gouda. But like I told my dear PSith Master, gouda isn't one of my favorites, so it has to be really super extra fabulous for me to be impressed by it. But I found it to be a little forgettable. Then again, we had so many cheeses, including the 3 Sisters stuff which I absolutely adore... I could be misremembering.

Regardless, there's blue. And yes I've had this blue. And I just don't like blue. Gonna have to pass on this one.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Maybe this will help...it isn't three pounds...it's 2 lbs. 11ozs.!

Yeah, it's also not whine.woot.

Sorry, had to. Seriously I don't understand why there's all this fuss about having non-wine items up, but are still wine related. WD goes through a lot to find high quality stuff for us to enjoy WITH our wine. I for one appreciate it. If you (the general you, not you in particular 7) don't want to partake of the item simply because it's non-wine, I feel sorry for you - you're missing out. But that's your choice.

Thinking about getting this for my stepmom for Christmas.. she is into the gourmet scene.

Anyone know anything about these? Would this make a good gift? Does the product need to be refrigerated?

question for the Vegas folks

How was the goatcheese? The flavors sound really interesting. In a good way.

Funny, just had the purple haze last week with an '03 Bandol. The cheese was delicious, very smooth creaminess of a chevre and nice balance of the fennel and lavender (really not that dominant). Not sure what the price was, so no idea if this is a good deal, but being wine.woot, it must be.

From Product Description:
You won’t find cheeses like this plastic-wrapped in individual slices. You won’t find them anywhere, in fact, except California and Wine.Woot.

Hmmm...Pretty sure they carry the purple haze at the co-op on NE 15th and Alberta in PDX.

Eyeballing this cheese and thinking it would make my mini trips out for nibblies easier, especially now that the snow is starting here in Chicago.

Love the Chevre and Gouda, but alas...seems like I'll pass on this one. Thumbs up to you woot for really picking up the pace and making me excited to spend my money. Way to boost the economy, ha.

Ok, now that is just silly and plain old not true. I know front page writeups tend to be tongue-in-cheek, but I can get at least two out of three of these cheeses, plastic-wrapped in individual slices, at my local cheese store. Shoot, I don't need to go any further than Whole Foods for Point Reyes.

That said, those two (Purple Haze and Point Reyes Blue) are excellent cheeses and are being offered here for a fairly nice price. I'm not familiar with the Cali-gouda.

So, I just found this collection of California artisinal cheese for 48 bucks. WD or CD as the case maybe is doing us a huge favor. This collection below is 48 bucks before shipping. Note the size.


One 4oz Cypress Grove Purple Haze Chevre,
One 6oz Winchester Cheese Medium Gouda,
One 6oz wedge Original Blue,
~plus one 3oz jar Marshall's Farm Honey

Ok, so we don't get the honey, but we do get a lot more cheese.

Thanks WD!

Conveniently this comes out to $42.99 for 43 ounces of cheese, thats $1 and ounce. Seems like a screaming deal to me when you compare to prices at the quality cheese section at a nice store.

very good deal. Like already mentioned, it's about $1/oz., plus, I looked at all the individual websites and it's less than they're selling for BEFORE likely $10 shipping. So, this is a great deal. Too bad I don't have a chance of eating it all myself. (Actually, more like I'm afraid I'd finish it all myself)

I used to live directly across the street from Cypress Grove in Arcata, CA. Very wonderful people and an absolutely incredible line of cheeses. I like Humboldt Fog even more, though.

Bought the 3 lb wheel of Point Reyes when it was offered last time, and would do it again in a heartbeat. I'm willing to take a chance on the others, because I doubt the connoisseurs at wine.woot would toss us anything that wasn't above-average quality. Here's to some tasty treats come the second week of December.

I'm broke, butI'll vouch for the Point Reyes. When they say mild, they mean it. It's unlike any blue cheese I've had. How's the Purple Haze?

What the hell is this? Who the hell wants to spend $60 on wine, $50 on fruitcake, $40 on CHEESE, or $50 on truffles?? Seriously. If I want CHEESE, I will go to my local cheese market. If I want $60 worth of wine, I will go to my local wine shop which is three minutes from my house. If I want fruitcake...well, I never want fruitcake. If I want truffles, I will buy them at a much lower price at my local gourmet chocolate shop.

Bring on the one bottle wines (that are $10 or less), and just drop the cheese and other foods.

Couple of questions before I bite.

How long will this stuff last in the fridge?

can it be frozen without losing to much of the texture/flavor?

Im just one person, and I doubt I can eat almost 3lbs of cheese before it goes bad

How good is this deal?

Another tricky one to compare as there does not appear to be an exact offer available anywhere. For this offer I have compared the direct from cheese-maker prices for each cheese. For shipping I have used the Point Reyes price (FREE) as they actually offer all three cheeses in a "collection" pack, albeit in much smaller sizes as has already been pointed out.

Click the link above for details on this deal.

As these have not been posted yet, here are links to each of the cheese-maker websites.
