A Favorite Destination for Visitors from Around the World

Each year visitors from all over the world come to “The Cheese Factory” of Rouge et Noir to sample award winning cheeses, learn about how they are made, and find new recipes and serving ideas. Begin your visit by stopping in at our store where you can taste generous samples of cheeses and an assortment of deli foods including hot chocolate, coffee, soup.

After a little cheese tasting, continue this delicious experience with a feast for your eyes. The grounds are located in a tranquil coastal mountain valley, so pour a glass of wine and enjoy your favorite cheese while sitting on the peaceful picnic grounds by the duck pond. Want to see more of Marin County? After visiting The Cheese Factory continue another 10-15 miles to Pt. Reyes National Seashore, fresh oyster farms, and the Miwok Indian Village.

The Cheese Factory is very popular for local Bay Area day trips as well as vacationers and tourists from all over the United States and the world. A favorite spot for picnickers, hikers, bicyclists, motor cyclists and vacationers there is even room to park limousines, tour buses and the family camper. We also rent out space to large event planners for weddings, family reunions, company barbecues and fund raisers. And, we now have Art at the Cheese Factory in an old barn and sculpture on the factory grounds.

Located north of San Francisco, east of Napa County, west of Pt. Reyes and Olema and southwest of Sonoma County.
