Gift Ideas for Locals

Our mail order team can ship almost anything in our stores - however, there are a few special programs we offer that are available only to those within driving distance of our Cambridge and South End locations. Here are some delicious offerings that are excellent gift options for local loved ones!

Our Take Home Wine Class
Our new monthly wine class is a great way to savor delicious, seasonal wines and learn more about them at the same time - all in the comfort of your own home! With each month's subscription, receive three bottles carefully chosen by our wine buyers around a theme. Each wine is accompanied by a detailed description, including information on the winemaker or family behind the wine, the land it comes from, production techniques and how the wine fits into the theme of the month. Available in 1, 3 or 6 month increments with pick-up at our South End or Cambridge locations. For more details, please click here.

The Formaggio Food Community
The Formaggio Food Community (FFC) is structured much like a CSA - subscribers to the FFC program receive a cheese and/or charcuterie share once a month. Each month, we showcase a new selection of domestic cheeses and housemade charcuterie items - many of them exclusives. This holiday season, give a tasty gift that makes a local impact! Available in 3 or 6 month increments with pick-up at our South End or Cambridge locations. For more details, please click here.

Food, Wine and Cheese Classes
We host several classes each month for folks wishing to learn more about food - from demonstrations, to tastings, to hands-on food preparation classes. Cheese 101 is a great place to start (and a popular gift option) - as is "Brave the Caves" with Tyler, manager of our cheese caves! Check out our other classes too and learn more about beer, charcuterie, cheesemaking, chocolate or pasta... to name only a few of the food groups we touch on! For more details, please click here.

Gift Certificate
These aren't strictly for locals only - in fact, they are usable in all three of our stores (in Cambridge, the South End, and New York) and online. However, they are a great option if you're not sure what to give someone. Let them choose their cheeses, treat themselves to artisan chocolate, indulge in a special bottle of vinegar - or, if they are local to Boston and Cambridge, partake of the FFC, take home wine class or sign-up for one of our classes!
