We went to Oxbow Cheese Merchant. They carry a wide variety of good cheeses. We wanted some goat cheese for the salad we were making for Thanksgiving. They also have wine, crackers, and other products. It is located at the Oxbow Market in Napa. Service is superb.

Had a white wine flight and a red wine flight. There were 3 wines and 3 cheeses in each. Yummy wines and cheeses. Service was good-attentive, friendly and accommodating. Nice place to add for wine tasting in Napa.

Looking for appetizers to take - try this Cheese merchant. Great selection of cheeses ,wines and jams. Great for picnics or take back to your room for appetizer before going out to dinner.

I have been to this place a number of times, every time there they have new and exciting wines that you can taste. Some of these wines are so rare the average person would never have access to them. Last week it was a 1913 late harvest wine that was fantastic

Tucked in the corner of the Oxbow Market, it looks small but they pack in some great wines. I wish I had time to try the cheese. We looked and looked and could not find exactly what we wanted. So we asked for help. She was so helpful. We wanted an Italian Alberino and she found a Napa version. We... More

Delicious sparkling wine and cheese but unfortunately our service was awful. We didn't get a review of wine offering or description of the cheese tray we ordered. Huge bummer considering we spent over $50 there. Won't go back.

I found more fine cheeses here than i expected. All were very fairly priced. The staff knew their curds. I found some excellent, hard to find cheeses here. Next door is a small wine shop that can pair the cheeses well. This is a great place to get picnic supplies. I'll be back the next time I'm in Napa.

We usually make a stop at Oxbow Market if in the Napa Valley Area. We very much like the wide range of cheeses that the Oxbow Cheese Merchant offers for sale. We often purchase some cheese from here to either enjoy with a picnic lunch in Napa, or to take back home with us and enjoy as a special treat... More
