My husband and I honeymooned in Napa Valley. Perhaps my fond memories of sipping wine and eating cheese and olives at V. Sattui Winery made my experience at The Blue Heron French Cheese Company all the more delightful! The Blue Heron French Cheese Factory has a charm not so different from the famous Napa Winery. They offer samples of local wines and french cheese, lunch may be obtained in their deli and the natural setting makes for a pleasant and relaxing experience.
Upon entering the grounds, you’ll see a converted farmhouse and garden. There are a few farm animals nearby, which the kids can enjoy feeding. The farmhouse is decorated with a New England style flair and contains a vast selection of food goods and souvenirs. The space is semi divided between a wine bar, a deli, a seating area, and a truffle bar and espresso station.
If you’re just passing through, live in the area, or are staying in a beach rental, the Blue Heron Cheese Company would be an ideal choice for lunch or grocery. I fully intend to stop by and stock up on wine, brie and a few packaged goods next time I’m staying in the area.
When visiting the North Oregon coast, most Oregonians and tourists make a point of visiting the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Blue Heron French Cheese Company has been in Tillamook for over 30 years and is located just South of the cheese factory. Stop by and sample all the goodness!
