Founded on this site in 1931, Vella Cheese is now run and operated by 3rd & 4th generation Vellas. Our milk comes from a local dairy. Our cheeses are made and aged onsite. Our specialty is our Dry Monterey Jack. We have a small retail store where you are welcome to a cheese tasting at no charge. We offer factory prices on California's original Artisan Cheese. We do not offer tours to the general public.

Tasted samples and purchased there.
Their cheeses are outstanding!!! Loved them and bought them.
They had a large selection to choose from as well.
We heard you could do a cheese tasting here, but it's not really a 'tasting experience' - you can just taste the cheese, and any of them, before you buy it.
It's good cheese, don't get me wrong, but...
We stopped here as part of our segway tour but you can just stop into the shop and they'll provide you with samples of their amazing choices. Their Toma is very good, but I purchased their Oro Secco...
