Looking for cheese in Atlanta area

What store in the Greater Atlanta Area has the widest selection of Cheeses. Looking for a place with a knowledgable staff where you can taste before buying.

    Star Provisions is great; Also, try Alon's near Virginia-Highlands. Whole Foods on Paces Ferry in Buckhead has a great selection, too.

      Try Star Proviosions on Howell Mill Rd. Related to crew at Bacchanalia. They have the best selection of Farmstead cheeses - and they will let you taste! Cheers!

        boxcar09 is totally correct! Star Provisions, you can taste the cheese and get a great bottle of wine to go with it. Then something sweet for later.

        If you need a less expensive option, Kalinka on Holcomb Bridge has a decent selection of cheeses, and they have always let me try before buying. English can be somewhat of a challenge for them, but you don't need a lot of it for your purpose.
