DI BRUNO BROS

Di Bruno Bros. began in 1939 with a small shop in the Italian Market of South Philadelphia. Today, with several retail locations and an easy-to-shop online storefront, Di Bruno Bros. puts the finest cheeses in the world within reach.

Just look at the photos on their website (especially under the "More About Us" section of the "About Us" page. Want to know more about how each cheese is made, or to see what a gourmet cheese store looks like inside? If your mouth isn't watering in the first few seconds, you probably aren't a fan of cheese!

Di Bruno Bros. offers three cheese clubs, all available in subscriptions of 3, 6, or 12 months.

  • Cheese Pairing 101: for $49.99 per month, recipients get a cheese matched with another treat for optimal taste. Previous pairings include Asiago Stravecchio with speck and Truffled Honey, and triple-creme Delice with cinnamon-cocoa pecans and amarena cherries. This ships during the third week of the month.
  • Kilo: for $57.99 per month, recipients get - you guessed it - approximately one kilogram of cheese in wedge form. As many competitor clubs only send out 1.5 pounds per shipment, the Kilo Club may give you more for your money (remember that 1 kg. = 2.2 lbs.). Past offerings have included Cravero Parmigiano Reggiano and L'amuse Gouda. This ships during the fourth week of the month.
  • Eat Like a Cheesemonger: for $69.99 per month, you receive a shipment personally selected by Di Bruno Bros. VP of Culinary Pioneering and third-generation owner, Emilio Mignucci. What would a world-renowned cheese expert eat? You'll find out with each surprise shipment; some combinations may include fresh cheeses, compotes and accentuating oils, or caviar, cheese, and foie medallions. This ships during the second week of the month.

Although we were initially confused by the pricing on the Di Bruno Bros. website, we eventually figured out that the monthly cost doesn't change based on the size of the subscription: whether you subscribe for 3, 6, or 12 months, you'll pay between $49.99 and $69.99 per month, depending on which club you select. On each club's main page, the price you see defaults to the 3-month total cost; use the dropdown box if you'd like to see the total for a longer subscription period.

All of Di Bruno Bros. cheese clubs ship for free.

Membership Overview:

  • Cheese Selection: Di Bruno Bros selects the cheese and pairings
  • Duration: 3, 6, or 12 months
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Shipping: Free

We were not surprised at all to see glowing customer reviews for everything Di Bruno Bros. sells. Amazing taste, excellent pairings, and superb attention to customer satisfaction are just a few of the compliments we saw from happy Di Bruno Bros. customers. With an iron-clad guarantee for every order - "We will promptly refund your money, re-ship or replace your order, or make any other arrangements to uphold our devotion to quality and a positive experience for you" - there's no downside to the clubs offered by these cheese experts. Just be sure to contact them within 48 hours of receipt if there is any issue with the shipment.

Simply put, it's hard to find a cheese club better than Di Bruno Bros. We highly recommend them for your cheese club membership - for a lucky recipient or for yourself.

MURRAY'S

Originally opened in 1940, Murray's Cheese is a beloved tradition in Greenwich Village, with their own cheese-aging caves on Long Island. You may have even seen some of their varieties in a local Kroger's grocery store or featured in one of the 600+ restaurants and hotels that use the gourmet cheeses in their dining choices.

We love the amount of detail provided about the three cheeses that come with each delivery. For example, one month's varieties included "Truffle Tremor" goat cheese from California, "Marieke Gouda" from Wisconsin, and "Prairie Breeze" cheddar from Iowa. Each one is described in mouth-watering detail and comes with a drink pairing suggestion for even more enjoyment.

Membership Overview:

  • Cheese Selection: Three half-pound varieties per shipment
  • Duration: 4, 6, or 12 months
  • Frequency: Monthly only, delivered on the second Thursday of the month
  • Shipping: Included

Murray's is the only retailer in our review of Cheese Clubs that cuts each cheese selection to order. Because cheese flavors can change from month to month, Murray's cheesemongers sample the cheeses in their storage caves and select the three most flavorful varieties for that month's delivery. Each wedge is wrapped in special paper that allows the cheese to keep maturing even during the delivery process and stops it from drying out. All orders are shipped in lined thermal boxes with gel packs, keeping the cheese cool to cold while en route. And, if you're giving the Cheese Club subscription as a gift, you can have the deliveries shipped in a Murray's gift crate for an extra $15.

You will want to keep an eye on the calendar: every delivery comes on the second Thursday of the month. If, for some reason, that date isn't going to work - you'll be out of town, or your gift recipient will be on vacation - you'll need to get in touch with Murray's customer service department at least 24 hours in advance to delay the shipment.

Looking for a little extra savings? Watch out for pop-up offers: when we visited the Murray's site, we were given a 10% discount for signing up for their email newsletter. However, be aware that the discount will only apply to a regular order, not for the Cheese Club membership.

Customers have plenty of good things to say about Murray's cheese. From celebrity fans like Oprah, who put the Cheese Club on her Must-Haves list, to the everyday clients who left glowing reviews on the Murray's website, people love the unique varieties and tantalizing flavors in each shipment.

Murray's knows cheese. And if you're looking to get to know cheese better than ever, you won't be disappointed by their Cheese Club membership.
