Domestic, imported, and artisanal cheeses - Erick's has the best selection in the High Country. Enjoy a slice or more for your spur of the moment picnic in the mountains, assemble a cheese board for your guests, let Erick's create a cheese tray for your party. Introduce yourself to a new cheese - just ask for a taste!

And don't forget the baked fresh-daily baguettes and delectable cookies (call ahead to order them by the dozen - or let Erick's ship so you can enjoy them any time).

But there's more to life, like chocolate, high quality oils and vinegars, condiments, olives, pesto, crackers, nuts sauces, jams, jellies, and more (from around the world - and close by)!

"This little shop on the side of a curvy road up in the mountains is one of the real hidden gems of Western North Carolina. They are easily the best cheese shop I have seen (not including shops that make their own), and they get a fresh supply in almost daily. I believe they carry close to 100 different cheeses at any given time, and several different variations of bleu, my favorite! Randall (the owner, who runs it with his wife) will gladly cut you off a taste of anything you're interested in, and they really do seem to care about every customer that walks in the door.

The chocolate selection here is also top notch, featuring almost all the "big name" (and no that doesn't mean the Godiva and Lindt crap) fancy chocolatiers from around the globe. They also have a very large selection of nuts, including the irresistible Scorned Woman brand that has a great kick!

You can even find some of the world's best wines here, from Super Tuscans to big Aussie Shiraz and everything in between. On more than one occasion I've found some really stellar older vintage wines for little more than wholesale costs buried in the shelves here, it's like treasure hunting! If you're headed up to the mountains for skiing or just to relax at your summer home make sure you include Erick's shop somewhere in your visit, you won't regret it!"
