Bay Blue

Three Bay Blue Wedges (6oz each)

Inspired by the sheer natural beauty of our coastal climate and locale, Bay Blue is a rustic-style blue cheese with a natural rind. It is known for its mellow flavor and sweet, salted caramel finish.

  • Made from pasteurized, rBST-free cows’ milk
  • Made with traditional rennet
  • Gluten-free
  • Aged for 90 days
Tasting Notes: 
  • Fudge-like texture with a beautiful natural rind
  • Mild blue mold pungency
  • Earthy with notes of malty toasted grain
  • Sweet, salted caramel finish
Uses and Pairing Suggestions: 

The star of an after-dinner cheese course, Bay Blue is perfect for savoring alongside a glass of Vintage Port or Barrel-Aged Scotch. In the kitchen, the options are endless. Bay Blue is a great topper for a succulent steak or burger, shaved onto poached pears or grilled peaches or melted into mushroom risotto.  Wine suggestions include a Chenin Blanc or an earthy Pinot Noir.
