This place is great--Joan and Pierre are extremely delightful and interesting. They're small production set up is fantastic. The cheeses are very delicious. I recommend the fresh feta the most--wonderful, rich flavor, and great as a 'cooking cheese'--but we didn't try a cheese we disliked. Their property is also extremely charming. Worth the drive from Walla Walla--and check out some... More

This is a great stop along the way to/from Dayton. The Monteillets are gracious hosts willing to talk all about their cheese. It's fun to watch the herd gather and hear them bleat and carry on. The outside kitchen is beautiful and makes one dream of having something similar in their own backyard. Not a fan of goat cheese, visitors... More

A must stop for great artisan cheeses. Wonderful owners who really care about their product and create tasty cheeses. You'll want to come back.

Have a French cheese experience, meet the owners, see the goats. If you can't get there, they often sample and sell their cheeses at the Walla Walla Farmers Market, and at the jimgermanbar in Waitsburg, and many local Walla Walla and Dayton restaurants serve their artisan handcrafted cheeses. Their cheeses are also sometimes available in Portland and Seattle - visit... More

Wet inside trailer. No toilet. I politely declined and drove away. Hope you have a flashlight in the middle of the night to use a toilet somewhere? Charged me $100.00 on credit card anyway.

This time of year, the ride from Walla Walla to the Fromagerie is a breath-taking trip through the golden foothills of the Blue Mountains. Cattle dot the landscape; wheat fields are in all stages of green and golden; and farmhouses are tucked in shaded canyons as well as in plain sight along the curving highway. It’s a lovely drive. I... More

You must make a stop at the Monteillet Fromagerie if you are on a quest to know where your food comes from and need a break from the non-stop wine tasting (although you can have some here too). The cheese is outstanding and Joan is obviously passionate about her cheese, animals and place. I am so excited to have met... More

On our wine tour of Eastern Washington it wasn't just the wine that rose to the top.... it was the cheese! The effervescent Joan and her handsome frenchie Pierre-Louis are a most phenomenal couple. Looking for a place to stay on our tour to the Walla Walla wine Country we stumbled onto the offering of a La Maison..... an adorable... More

Have heard nothing but good things about this place and was definitely not disappointed!

My husband and I traveled from Sequim to Prosser for a weeks stay in Washington Wine Country. For months I have talked about going to Monteillet Fromagerie in Dayton to see the farm and experience the wine and cheese.
