Our Featured Gourmet Gouda Cheese
Wijngaard Cheese, the makers of Reypenaer and Reypenaer VSOP, were having some production difficulties with Reypenaer VSOP. They have overcome the problems, but the Reypenaer VSOP still needs time to age to its perfect flavor and texture and sadly it will not be available until mid 2014.
Luckily there is still the 1-year old Reypenaer, the multiple award–winner, definitely a worthy alternative.

Gouda and Gouda-style cheeses are recognizable in their shape, most of them are wheels, big wheels around 25 pounds in weight. As Gouda refers to a particular style cheese, there are of course many varieties; length of ageing, method of aging, ingredients used, rind color and herbs, or spices added.
