FAQ: Placing a Presale Order & Shipping

Eek! I don’t have the password!

Please contact us using the email address you used to place your preorder and we will share the password to the Presale page with you.

How much did I preorder?

Please look for a recent email from us with a final confirmation of your Rogue River Blue preorder totals. This would have been sent to the email address you used to place your preorder.

When will my preorder ship?

When you check out, you must select a shipping date. If you selected a shipping date on or after September 1 (as directed), we will make every effort to ship your cheese on that requested date.

If you selected a shipping date prior to September 1, your cheese will be shipped in the order in which it was received (after 9/1), and we are unable to tell you in advance what day that will be.

Either way, you will receive an email notice when your order ships.

Please note: any additional items you add to your cart when you place your order for Rogue River Blue will ship along with the Rogue River Blue, and on the shipping date you select at checkout (after 9/1).

When will I be charged for this cheese?

We will charge your credit card when your order ships.

When I placed my order, I requested a quantity of Rogue River Blue that’s greater than the amount I preordered. Is this ok?

Unfortunately, no – because this cheese is very limited, we have only allocated you the amount of Rogue River Blue that you preordered. We cannot sell you additional wheels/wedges through our Presale Page.

How can I get more Rogue River Blue?

Please visit the Rogue River Blue product page for information about general online sales.

Can I send Rogue River Blue as a gift?

Of course! At checkout, feel free to add a special gift message in the Comments field. We will hand-write a card with your message, and include it in the box.

Please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure that the recipient is home to receive the box on the day it is delivered. We cannot offer refunds/replacements for cheese that spoils because no one is present to accept the package.

Can I ship to multiple addresses?

Yes, but you must place a separate order for each shipment going to a different address. Each order requires its own shipping charge. Additionally, the total amount of Rogue River Blue you order (between all orders placed) cannot be more than the amount you preordered.

Can I have a whole wheel split and shipped to multiple addresses?

No, whole wheels cannot be divided and shipped to multiple addresses. We recommend ordering 4 quarter wedges instead.

How do I preorder 2021 Rogue River Blue?

Please contact us and we will notify you when the preorder process for 2021 is underway.

FAQ: How to Prepare and Enjoy Your Cheese

When will my Rogue River Blue cheese expire?

The expiration date for all 2020 Rogue River Blue is between January 15, 2021 and March 31, 2021. We recommend consuming the cheese before the expiration date.

We are not able to honor your request to receive a wheel/wedge of cheese with a later expiration date.

What drink should I pair with Rogue River Blue?

We recommend enjoying Rogue River Blue alongside a fine wine with distinction. Our favorite pairing is with a complex, earthy Syrah or Syrah blend – preferably from Oregon! Rogue River Blue also pairs well beside a tawny or ruby port, as well as brandy and cognac.

Do you have a favorite pairing that’s not listed here? Contact us to share – we’d love to hear about it!

What should I eat with Rogue River Blue?

This cheese needs no accompaniment and can be enjoyed entirely on its own. If eating with a cracker, we recommend a wafer-style cracker with no added flavors so as not to mask the complex nature of the cheese.

Rogue River Blue shines on a cheese board beside roasted or candied nuts, particularly hazelnuts. We also enjoy it with a huckleberry or fig compote.

What do I do with the grape leaves?

The grape leaves that we use to wrap the cheese should be left on the cheese to hold it intact and maintain its character. They are even edible!
