Christopher’s Wine & Cheese is located at the corner of Sunset Drive at Main Street in Historic Downtown Blowing Rock. We hand select each wine to reflect the best taste and value of each wine region – locally and around the world.

Prior to carrying any wine on our sales floor, we try it and test it. We introduce new wines and varietals through tasting flights to make people comfortable with wines other than those they already know. We educate the public and professionals in the food and wine industry about wine and its delicate flavorful nature. That education includes service tips like temperature and glassware to opening the bottle to storage before and after opening. We try to keep our wines at price points to encourage people to explore the world through wine

We also strive to enhance your culinary adventure with an assortment of cheeses and chocolates from around the globe chosen for their ability to pair and blend with the flavors of wine. Should you need picnic baskets, chocolates, Champagnes, cheese, recipes, or assistance selecting a perfect bottle of wine for dinner; we’re here to serve your adventure into the world of wine. Private events may also be reserved for your group on site or at the location of your choice.

Questions? We’re only a phone call away – 828-414-9111

    Hello Christopher,
    Today I am searching for Fun wine blogs and came across yours. For fun, I make and sell fun whimsical wine stoppers and sell them at local art shows and online through ###########.com. I would be honored if you blogged about my little shop. I would even love to send you one because they are much cuter in person. I love to collect wine stoppers because I love wine! My collecting furthered into wanting to have crazy and over the top stoppers for entertaining and gifts. Plus, people love that they are a homemade type item. Let me know how you feel about this…
    Thank you,
    Cassie

    Dear Christopher,

    My name is Ken. I am a representative of Old Amsterdam Cheese and I would like to briefly discuss with you the benefits of our cheese and discuss the possible promotional opportunity between us.

    One cannot talk about Old Amsterdam without first discussing the Westland Family, the founders of the company. For years, the family sold cheese door-to-door and traded cheese in Amsterdam and the surrounding lands. Eventually, the family acquired a storehouse in Amsterdam where their dream of creating a mature cheese with the same sweet, rich, smooth, and creamy taste of the cheeses they enjoyed began.

    To this day, the production of Old Amsterdam is still overseen by master cheese makers constantly monitored for quality and taste. Over the years, it has won many awards, including:

    • World Championship Cheese Awards (Best of Class (Aged Gouda)): 2010
    • Deutsche Landwirtschafts Gesellschaft (Gold): 2011, 2009, 2008, 2006…
    • Nantwich Cheese Show (Best Dutch Cheese): 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1996
    • Superior Taste Award (3 Stars): 2011, 2010, 2009
    • World Cheese Awards (Gold Medal): 2000, 2001

    Old Amsterdam is a smooth, rich, robust, easily sliceable cheese that offers a beautiful depth of sweet and savory flavors. But you don’t have to just hear my words on the matter. We would gladly send a sample of our fine Gouda and let you judge for yourself.

    We look forward to hearing back from you!

    Sincerely,

    Your Friend, Old Amsterdam
