Started by locals John and Kendall Antonelli, the couple opened a by-reservation-only tasting room and private event space at Lamar Union in the former Estilo Outlet space.

In addition to cheese tastings, Antonelli's Cheese offers classes to educate those attending about all things cheese, as well as space to book private events.

"We’ve got a bunch of events lined up that we’re really excited about," Kendall Antonelli said. "Whether you’re looking to deepen your cheese knowledge, find a new favorite or just enjoy some good company, there’s a spot for you here. Grab a ticket and let's make some new memories."

The tasting room also offers the option to pick up cheese trays, as well as their popular Cheese Club boxes.

For those looking for more of a retail vibe, Kendall Antonelli said she recommends the Hyde Park location called The Cheese Shop at 4220 Duval St., Austin, which offers cut-to-order cheese options.

"We’ve been dreaming about this moment, imagining all the cozy tastings, the lively classes and all the wonderful gatherings we can host for you," Kendall Antonelli said. "Whether it’s your next big celebration or a casual work meetup, we’ve got you covered."
