Sonoma Jack may have bigger marketing muscle and a storefront right off the Plaza, but if you've spent any real time in the wine valley you know what the locals know: that Vella Cheese -- the family run business just a few short blocks from the heart of downtown Sonoma -- has the best Jack going. Pair a half-wheel of their high-moisture Jack with an authentic Italian salami and your gift recipient will know just how much you love them. For real. But order early, because these guys take their time. (Like everything that's worthwhile.)
This is truly "going to the source". You won't "settle" for grocery store versions after having the real thing. And the off-the-beaten-path location is part of the fun. This is honestly something worth Craving.
