Since opening in 2013, C’est Cheese Artisan Cheese and Deli has always had one aim – to showcase the amazing range of product hand made by New Zealand’s specialist cheesemakers.
Housed in the historic Anderson Building (1875), the business has steadily grown to incorporate the cheese and deli section and our very own creamery, making cheese under our brand, Remutaka Pass Creamery. The goal is to offer a complete cheese experience – watch it being made and purchase cheese from our award winning deli.
While we naturally celebrate all things cheesy, we are equally passionate about New Zealand’s artisan food producers, be they from the fabulous Wairarapa or beyond. Our deli strives to stock quality local product, supporting small producers wherever possible.

Experienced With Cheese
A crucial part of the business is of course our staff – some call us cheesemongers.
We are passionate about and love our cheeses, we spend seven days a week with them after all. We also love getting to know our customers and what they like, this is very much a people business.
We prefer to think of ourselves as matchmakers.
Our online store and national delivery service is the most recent development for us and we expect this will be a rapidly growing part of our business. We will add to the range available on line over the coming months, however given the sheer volume and constant changes with stocked items, not all product will make it into our online store. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please do get in touch, we will make every effort to source what you require, using our best matchmaking powers…
