The shop is a decent size, but the selection is small. 18 cheeses currently, with hopes to double that soon. Mostly American, some European. I have a crappy memory for names, but there's some nice stuff there. There's also a similarly sized collection of beers, also mostly American (some cross-over, too - beers from Rogue Brewery and cheese from Rogue Creamery). The "stated theme" of the wine collection was examples of what's best from each region. I don't know enough to know if that was reflected in what's in the racks. There's also a nice $10 table. They do tastings on weekends; today there were five bottles of summer rose. And then a few miscellaneous odds and ends on the shelves (oils, vinegar, Mexican chocolate, etc.).
A nice little shop, clearly with room to grow and hopes to do just that. Very enthusiastic and eager owners. Definitely worth checking out, and since we're local, we'll be lending our support.

And, as of yesterday, Barton's book cracked the Amazon Top 50 - in all categories, not just cookbooks (per Barton, it was one behind Gwyneth Paltrow, and one ahead of Shania Twain). Congratulations!
