Here's a stocking stuffer you've probably never thought of ordering: an eight-pound cheese wheel. But this is no ordinary cheeseball--Vella Sonoma Dry Jack happens to be one of America's finest cheeses.
Made in California's Sonoma Valley since 1931, Dry Jack is an all-natural, Parmesan-style cheese. Aged seven to 10 months, this pale-yellow cheese has a sweet nuttiness and is more versatile than almost any other cheese.
