The true community of Inspirato comes alive when members gather for an experience outside of their travel. This summer, Inspirato had the exclusive opportunity to partner with member, Farr Hariri, to offer members and their friends an unforgettable sunset cheesemaking and wine tasting experience at the stunning Casa Madrona Hotel and Spa in San Francisco. The cheesemaker at the Delfina Restaurant lent us a hand to entertain our guests.
Mr. Hariri is the owner of Belfiore Cheese Company – one of the few remaining family-owned cheese making facilities in the Bay Area. All of their products maintain traditional cheesemaking techniques, which preserve the quality and character of homemade cheese – something that Hariri takes an immense amount of pride in.
Inspirato Members were led through a complete and personal cheesemaking demonstration and learned the secrets for creating Belfiore Cheese Company’s beautiful, handcrafted cheeses. Fresh mozzarella, fior di latte, and burrata were the featured favorites of the night. The decadent spread was complimented by wine provided by from Napa Valley and light hors d’oeuvres served by Poggio restaurant.
The events you are offering are a real added value to us since they are things we may not always take the time to organize ourselves, are unique, and give our family a fun way to share time together.Liddy L.Inspirato Member
The intimate culinary encounter was a tremendous success, as members took away more than just a heightened appreciation for the exceptional practice that is cheesemaking. Inspirato Members had the opportunity to unwind after a long day, mingle with other local members, and establish what could be the beginning of new friendships. They exchange stories of their last memorable Inspirato vacations and share tips and insights for the next ones.
