Rubiner’s Cheesemongers & Grocers

A good cheese shop is a community treasure for last minute wine and cheese gatherings, to satisfy a craving or just to experience the lore of cheesemaking.  One of the best cheese shops in New England and arguably possibly the entire northeast is Rubiner’s Cheesemongers & Grocers in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.  Housed in a former bank complete with a vault, it is a cheese lover’s heaven for fantastic cheese, other yummy little noshes, cured meats, candies and even a cafe. . The staff is oh so, good looking in a very natural way and cheerfully offer tastings. I am completely enchanted with this place.
