Truckles Cheesemongers

714 N. Sheppard Street (Museum District)
Richmond, VA 23221

We are excited to be hosting our next event at Maggie Bradshaw’s new Truckles Cheesemongers location in the Museum District.  Her dedicated cheese shop that started in Blue Bee Cider has moved to a larger, stand-alone spot that sells cut-to-order cheeses, grilled cheeses, charcuterie, accoutrements, wine and beer to-go.  This new location also allows Maggie to offer custom, guided tastings that include a little bit of cheese history as well as education on cheese and beverage pairings. We learned a ton last year when we had a cider & cheese tasting with Maggie and look forward to this year’s wine and cheese pairing opportunity. We hope you will join us!  On the menu will be 5 wine and cheese pairings listed below plus small nibbles for palate cleansing. A rep from Free Run Wine Merchants will be on hand to provide the wine education.
