New Luxe Trend: Cheese Caves?

Now that just about every high-end restaurant and hotel worth its salt has a wine cellar, developers are looking for new ways (or looking to history for old ways) to stand out. A solution, courtesy of a report in Forbes Magazine, is cheese caves.

Some locations for cheese caves seem obvious, like Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee (just outside of Knoxville), which sells cheese made on-site. But the Ritz-Carlton Toronto and the Park Hyatt Chicago have also developed urbanized (and high-tech) "caves" for cheese—in the case of the Ritz-Carlton, more than 200 varieties are available. The Four Seasons Hong Kong sells a goat's milk cheese that has been produced for more than 300 years in Montpellier, France, and the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego has three floor-to-ceiling refrigerators dedicated to cheese.

Will this be the new top trend of luxury hotels going forward, or is this just catering to a small niche? Sound off in the comments below!
