Morsels

Cheese Stands Alone

By Patricia Lynn Henley


After four years of selling the top artisan cheeses in California and around the world, Ditty Vella is closing the doors June 30 on the Cheesemaker's Daughter shop in Sonoma, just off the town's main plaza. "I want to spend more time in my garden, and I want to be able to cook for friends," says the daughter of renowned cheese maker Ig Vella. Ditty adds that meeting incredible people has been the upside of four years of hard work, but she's ready to move on to other personal projects. "There are people I will miss, but the day-to-dayness of the shop, I won't miss that." Lovers of cheese and other fine foods will miss the friendly, hometown atmosphere and diverse sophistication of the stock at the Cheesemaker's Daughter. 127 E. Napa St., Sonoma. 707.996.4060.
