Enjoy a Cheese and Winery Tour!
With national cheese day coming up on Saturday, June 4, what better way to celebrate than with a winery and cheese tour! Platinum Party Bus offers tours in Northeast Ohio and our team is ready to help you plan your exciting day out!
We’ve assembled a number of the award-winning places to find great cheese in Northeast Ohio. Some of the shops offer printed cards with recipes. Most offer locally-sourced items to complement cheese selections–like wine, pickles, smoked meats, bakery and more. Others may provide a welcoming space for friends to sit, chat and eat.
What’s more, if you’re seeking a relaxing and scenic outing with family/friends, Platinum can help with that, too. We’ll work with you to put together a trip on one of our comfortable, large-windowed, sofa-like seating party buses. It will come equipped with a Bluetooth sound system, large screen monitor, ice chest, and stemware for any refreshments/munchies you may wish to stash onboard. Best of all, it comes with a chauffeur, so you can enjoy your group and scenery along the way!
Places You Won’t Want to Miss!
- Grandpa’s Cheesebarn is home to over 200 different cheeses. This beloved business is a celebration of all things dairy as you’ll also find locally-sourced chocolates, ice cream, and gift items. Grandpa’s has two other northeast Ohio locations. Needless to say, there’s something for everyone at this “foodie-approved” destination.
- Old Brooklyn Cheese Company specializes in cheese, award-winning mustards and locally-sourced craft beers. Weather-permitting, they also offer an outdoor eating space. In 2020, the business opened a second east-side location and in 2021 an affinage cheese operation for the aging of their cheeses.
- Guggisberg Cheese is known for its Swiss—it took grand champion honors in a 2019 national competition that had 2,555 entries! The Guggisbergs moved from Switzerland to Ohio in the 1940s. They settled in Ohio’s “Amish country,” and established Guggisberg Cheese in 1950. Visitors delight in the chalet that is their store and processing plant, where you can actually watch cheese being made. Viewing times periodically change, but are posted on their website.
- Shisler’s Cheese House claims to be “the best little cheese house in Orrville.” The original location was established in 1958 focusing on good product and customer service to generate referrals. The strategy worked and a third generation of Shisler’s opened a second operation in Copley. In addition to local shop sales, their cheeses now ship to over 30 countries and is in the process of further expanding its line of locally sourced products.
