Gwen and Christopher have resided in the Conway neighborhood and have worked for industry leaders in hospitality for over 30 years. During that time, they’ve traveled to many parts of the United States & Great Britain to explore locally made wine, beer, cheese, and other market items. This coming fall, they will bring that expertise to the new friends and guests who visit the market.
“We love sharing stories of our travels with our guests, especially the experiences and new products we’ve found along the way,” says Gwen. “But living the lifestyle of cheese and wine is more enjoyable with friends and family.” Christopher agrees, saying that “all good conversation starts at the community table, and so we’re excited to invite everyone to join us at our table, at Formaggio & Friends.”
Ultimately, the journey of discovery will continue across the table, where both producers and consumers will join the conversation, demystifying the myth of fancy foods and wines. “Through exploring seasonal, small batch cheeses & discovering less explored wine regions in the US & around the world, we can all aspire towards being a global citizen. It's all produce in the end, no matter how long the journey is from the farm to your table,” says Gwen
Gwen and Christopher pride themselves on our old-school personalized guest service. "We will help you learn about, taste and discover cheese and wine you will enjoy. At the end of it all we are a neighborhood market and whether you visit us in person or online, we invite you to browse our products and enjoy finding both new and old favorites."
You can always enjoy your experience sampling wines and enjoying cheese in our store or take it with you.
