Experience the liquid gold rush from the hills of San Francisco with Wagon Wheel, a versatile, snackable cheese at its glory when melted down and forged into your favorite meal. Born from the sunshine of California’s rolling golden hills, Wagon Wheel is our most versatile and snackable cheese. At room temperature, it’s approachable and delicious. When melted, we call it Liquid Gold.

Designed by chefs for chefs (originally on Zuni Cafe’s pizza menu), Wagon Wheel is forged from organic cow’s milk supplied by Tresch Family Dairy (part of Straus Family Creamery) and aged for a minimum of 3 months as 15-pound wheels.

Wagon Wheel’s rosy-hued rind surrounds a delightfully supple center. Flavors of chicken broth, brown butter, and cream make it a winner for both well seasoned palates and new cheese fans. It’s also easy to pair to a variety of beer.

Originally created for Zuni Cafe for their pizza menu, it is our go-to melter - grilled cheese (the key to our very own house grilled cheese), mac and cheese, burgers, raclette, fondue

Cooked starches (potatoes, crusty bread, pasta), or with tangy partners (pickled vegetables), sweet & savory options (onion jam)

Beer-friendly; Rich Chardonnay, Rhone Blends, Saison, Hojicha (roasted green tea)
