Soft, runny, creamy, peppery, hard, sharp, fruity and crumbly. What could possibly garner such a diverse and seemingly contradictory string of adjectives? Only the drool-worthy menu at our new favorite find—the Wine Connection Cheese Bar at Robertson Walk. Opened in October 2012, this bright and modern space replaces the old retail store with a dine-in and take-away mecca for all things wine and cheese.
Have a seat inside among the simple, yet elegant black, white and natural wood high top chairs and tables, gaze at the suggestive display cases with stacks and rounds of imported cheese, and savor a glass of wine with your divine cheese plate in the crisp, cool air conditioned interior. For those who like more natural climes, there is also outdoor seating, albeit, it is directly next to the driveway.
Even cheese snobs will find something to please on the menu here, as you can choose from over 40 different types of raw and pasteurised cheeses. Go for a full-flavored hard Gruyere Fribourg “12 months” from Switzerland, a spicy blue-veined Gorgonzola from Italy, or a milky dry Valencay “Anjouin” Goat’s Cheese from France.
The A la Carte Platters allow you to mix and match cheeses from the Wine Connection’s monthly specials with 3 items for $19, 5 items for $29, or 7 items for $39. However, If you really want to go all out, opt for the Cellar Selection ($8 per cheese, minimum 3 cheeses), and choose from the very best of the best cheeses, served on a platter with special breads and condiments.
In addition to divine cheeses, the Wine Connection also offers cold cuts to compliment the cheese platters, massive salads, homemade tartines, and the Raclette ($39 per guest, minimum 2 guests), a sublime combination of cold cuts and potatoes smothered in creamy melted cheese....
