Cheese in British Columbia - Carmelis Goat Cheese Artisan
Carmelis is a family owned boutique dairy, which takes pride in the uncompromising approach taken to ensure the unique quality of its cheeses. The cheeses are produced on a small scale which enables them to closely monitor each and every cheese while placing an emphasis on their place’s design and its integration into nature, the landscape around them, and the quality of the environment.
Located near Okanagan Lake, some 12 km south of downtown Kelowna, close to the entrance to Okanagan Mountain Park. We desire to impart a sense of the breathtaking views of the Okanagan Valley.
Wine and Cheese Pairings:
Pinot Noir & Misty - The ash coating on this cheese is bold and earthy but still creamy. Enjoy with some dried Okanagan cherries in the cooler months to bring back memories of summer.
Pinot Blanc & Chabichou - This mild, tangy cheese in its youth would be a brilliant accompaniment to Pinot Blanc on a summer's day on a deck overlooking the lake. Include some nuts and a little apricot jelly and you have the recipe for a perfect afternoon.
Pinot Gris & Lior - Nibble away at this sharp and tart cheese with a sweetness throughout. Grate onto salad and enjoy a long luxurious lunch. You deserve it!
