Welcome to the Via Umbria cheese counter! Do you love cheese? We love cheese, and we’re so excited to be here, providing you with the best in cheese products, classes, and general cheesy knowledge.
There is much more to cheese than the processed and pre-sliced options you can pick up at your local grocery. Artisanal cheeses are made in so many ways, and with different blends of milk, which leads to different textures and a unique taste in each type of cheese.
While we pay homage to Via Umbria’s Italian roots with some amazing Italian cheeses (Taleggio, anyone? Or how about one of our many, beautiful pecorinos?), our goal is to bring you the best cheese that we can find, period. That includes a wonderful variety of products from all over the world – from English Stilton to bloomy rinds from Vermont, Swiss Alpines to gorgeous cheddar from Prince George’s County, Maryland.
At our counters, you can find everything from fresh and soft cheese like mozzarella to firmer options like parmigiano, from washed rinds to blues. We even have unique options like our super popular Peccorino Moliterno al Tartufi (sheep’s milk cheese with truffles!).
Cheese is our passion and we can’t wait to bring that passion to the heart of Georgetown! To learn more, and indulge in our delicious offerings, join our Cheesemongers at our Melt Cheese Party on Wednesday, February 10th, at 7pm. This decadent evening features fountains of fondue and raclette, accompanied by wine and beer pairings. For more information or to book your reservation visit us online or call us at (202) 333-3904.
