Vella Cheese is an old-timer in the world of making great American cheeses. Tom Vella began making cheese in 1931 in the Sonoma Valley of California. The company is now run by his son, Ig Vella, and is famous for its Jack cheeses. Jack cheese was created in the Gold Rush Days in Monterey, California by a Scotsman, named David Jacks. This Special Select Jack has all the same characteristics as Vella's regular Dry Jack, with its hard, pale yellow interior and sweet, nutty flavor. It is aged for a full year (as opposed to seven months) to develop an even harder texture and more intense flavor, making it similar to a Parmigiano Reggiano. This cheese goes well with fruit and wine and is excellent shaved over pasta.

  • Made from cultured cow's milk.
  • Suitable for vegetarians
  • Photo depicts whole 8 lb. form of cheese.
  • We cut and wrap this item by the 1/2 pound.

Latest Customer Reviews for Vella Special Select Dry Monterey Jack

Not so special
Our wine club samples a half dozen cheeses during an evening's tasting, and this was one for the latest gathering. The unanimous assessment was that it has little flavor. Go for a Parmigiano Reggiano or a regular Monterey Jack, depending on which type of cheese you prefer.

Vella Special Select Dry Monterey Jack
I recall this cheese as a young boy, my grandparents (Ialian) would use this all the time. It is impossible to find this in the area anymore since most of the old Italian Deli's have long gone out of business. It is excellent cheese, with a great texture and very much resembles Parmigiano Reggiano. I am happy that I located a place to buy it

Lovely texture and flavor
Aged cheddar texture except more firm; the piece I got was slightly overripe so it was somewhat bitter and had a slight ammonia smell--it'd be wonderful if it weren't overripe

Memories of a child
I ordered this cheese because it brings back memories of my child hood in Santa Clara CA My dad used to eat it everyday and so I decided if dad likes it it has to taste good.
