What you'll learn in this cheese tasting class:

See for yourself why Conde Nast Traveler named Murray's Cheese Caves one of the 50 Coolest Places to visit on earth as we give you an exclusive look into the world of affinage (The Art of Aging Cheese).

We'll meet at our Distribution Center in Long Island City, Queens where you'll be greeted with tasty mimosas! Then you’ll meet up with one of the expert Murray’s Cavemasters who will lead you on a tour of our state of the art cheese aging facility.

They’ll teach you all about what goes on in each specially constructed, temperature and humidity controlled cave. Learn about basic affinage practices and the science behind what happens to cheeses as they mature.

After the tour, we'll lead you through a tasting of six of our Cavemaster Reserve Cheeses so you can see (and more importantly, taste) the benefits of our Caves Team's hard work.

Fine Print:
  • Strictly limited to 12 attendees
  • Please note this class meets at 25-19 Borden Avenue, not our Greenwich Village retail store. Transportation to LIC is not provided.
  • Closed toed shoes and socks are REQUIRED. Also, as the caves are quite chilly, we recommend bringing an extra outer layer.

Murray's Cheese Caves Tour & Tasting
Reviewed by Beth G. on 12/3/2017
I loved it! Tours are capped to 12 persons, and we broke to 6 at a time to view/hear about smaller rooms. The guide seemed very knowledgeable and welcomed questions. The tasting after the tour was delightful and included wonderful descriptions of the plated samples. The tasting guide seemed very knowledgeable and welcomed questions. If you love cheese and the proprietor's description piques your interest do it! Murray's has done a wonderful job in structuring the tour and seeing the rooms where cheese is aged with explanation is very informative.
