I am a lover of good goat cheese and strong s mooth Blues.... they had it! Have tried a variety of their offerings now highly recommend to anyone who loves great cheese!! Would love to see the owners consider a local offering. Maryland has two great cheese dairys and there is a sheep dairy in Western MD now. I would prefer to support local producers to overseas and out of state.... for that reason 4 stars vs 5.

Thank you very much for reviewing our business! As part of our cheese selections we frequently offer cheese from Firefly Farms (Western Shore) and Chapel's Country Creamery (Easton, MD). We may have been out when you visited. We try to carry cheeses that are difficult to obtain or otherwise unavailable here in Kent County given our general distance to larger retail and grocery stores.

Since you enjoy trying local products - check out our locally harvested honey, handmade pastas and sauces from Talluto's in Philadelphia, and our local pork and beef selections. We also carry whiskey, rum, gin, and vodka made here on the Eastern Shore and wonderful mixers made in DC and Maryland to pair with them.

Safe travels and we hope to see you again!
Jenn Baker, Owner

I found Chestertown to be quaint and lovely. A great place to get away from the buzz of city living and enjoy the country! Beautiful horse pastures and big trees with the hum of locusts to serenade us! I would recommend anyone to visit there and by all means stop by the Chester River Wine and Cheese Co for a lovely meal!

John and Jennifer will treat you like family. If you are in Chestertown or nearby you must go and sample their wide variety of delicious cheeses and wine pairings. John was very knowledgeable and helpful in selecting and recommending cheeses based on our specific taste preferences. The Rose' he suggested was spot on and superb!
Also visit their other store - 3 storefronts away - which is abundantly supplied with a foodie and kitchen lovers wonderland. I will be there again and again.

Our first time in Chestertown and our very first stop! What a great selection of wines and all things gourmet! the staff was so warm and helpful. There is also a great kitchen wares shop a couple doors down which is by the same owner i believe.

We found a lovely little place in Chestertown for wine and cheese take out. The owner was no only friendly extremely helpful as we selected a French wine to accompany the three cheeses we selected for our picnic lunch. There were other delicacies in the story as we wandered through, but we were focused on our picnic lunch.

Thank Joseph D
