Find handcrafted artisan cheeses paired with wine and beer
Vivant Fine Cheese has a new home in downtown Paso Robles, with the an updated cheese tasting room featuring premium local and imported handcrafted artisan cheeses paired with the finest Central Coast wine and beer. The shop, formerly located at the corner of 11th and Pine streets across from Park Cinemas, has moved down the street to 821 Pine Street, Suite B.
