Great Cheese Shop Near University of Chicago/Hyde Park Area?

Iconyc | Jan 11, 201605:06 PM

Hello! New York resident with not much knowledge of the Chicago area hoping I can find some advice. A good buddy of mine is getting married this spring and our group of friends would like to get him unique gift cards from local businesses around the University of Chicago (he and his fiancée are grad students- in a smallish apartment, hence the gift cards in lieu of actual gifts). Apart from his wife-to-be, his greatest passion is cheese. Are there any good cheese or sundry shops around the University of Chicago? Or, if not, any outstanding ones easily accessible by public transport? Ideally ones that also sell wine, so the fiancee can enjoy it as well (we are thinking of buying them 6 cards, all about $100-200 each) Would appreciate any tips as the only cheese shop boards I can find on here are pretty old.
