Great CheeseBurgers on the Grill

With warm weather that seems to be around most of the year here in the Texas Hill Country, backyard grilling becomes an important part of our lives.

Mac & Cheese - Comfort Food Extraordinaire

With delicious raw milk cheeses from Veldhuizen Cheese Farm in Dublin, Texas, available at 4.0 Cellars, a favorite offering to customers is the Texas Cheese and Wine Experience. These pairings require advanced reservations and are typically limited to 12 people for each session, regularly scheduled at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm daily, plus private sessions typically scheduled at 3:00 pm or after. These sessions include 5 different cheeses paired with 5 wines (usually 2 white and 3 red) from the 4.0 Cellars winery partners: Brennan Vineyards, Lost Oak Winery and McPherson Cellars.
