The first Cheesetique opened in 2004 as an old-school cheese shop. Wanting to become the kind of joint where cheese and wine enthusiasts could gather, Cheesetique added the Cheese & Wine Bar in 2008. In 2011, Cheesetique opened its second location in the Shirlington neighborhood of Arlington. And in 2016, Cheesetique’s third location opened in the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington.
Today, Cheesetique is the go-to spot for fine cheeses, food-friendly wine, and an eclectic, cheese-centric menu. Our expert team can't wait to welcome you soon!
About Our Owner
Cheesetique was conceived and is owned and operated by “Cheese Lady” Jill Erber.
Jill graduated from The University of Chicago in 1998 with a degree in Computer Science and moved to Northern Virginia to work in software development. But she always dreamed of working for herself... and being surrounded by her favorite foods: cheese and wine! With the unflagging support of her husband, she opened Cheesetique in 2004.
Jill lives in Alexandria with her family.
