What is the cheese course like at JORY at The Allison Inn?

If you are lucky, JORY at The Allison Inn fromager Ron Acierto will be on hand to present your table with a variety of local and imported cheese on a beautiful cart — striped walnut salvaged wood that was handcrafted by artist Ken Austin. 
 
You can select three cheeses from a curated, constantly rotating list — the night we were there we had the Sunset Bay Rivers Edge Chèvre (goat) made with a streak of pimento; Ancient Heritage Dairy (a blend of cow and sheep); and a Manchego from Spain.
 
Although the cheese plate varies with accoutrements by season at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, we’ve had it served with membrillo (quince paste), fig spread and a honeycomb from the Willamette Valley restaurant’s onsite beehives. The plate is a great choice to pair with the area’s famed pinot noir.
