Wijngaard Cheese

Wijngaard Cheese is a family business with a long tradition of artisan cheese making going back more than 100 years. The current Wijngaard brothers who run the cheese business are the 3rd generation that are responsible for these fine, award-winning Gouda cheese.

The cheese of the Wijngaard family are made from milk from grass-fed cows. Cows fed on fresh grass give milder and better milk and cheese made from this milk ripens better. Milk supply of this type of milk is limited, since summers are not that long in Holland. The cheese is ripened in historic, custom-built cheese cellars in the historic town of Woerden. It is the unique micro-climate in these cellars, with fluctuating temperature and humidity, that influences the flavor of the cheese greatly.

If you ever visit Amsterdam, go to the Reypenaer Tasting Room in center of Amsterdam where you can personally test and evaluate the flavor, the aroma and the qualities of the Reypenaer cheese, all under the guidance of an expert cheese taster.

The makers of Reypenaer cheese developed a few more flavored goudas. This one is with sundried tomato and chives and looks as delicious as it is. These small cut gouda cheese is called Affine with Sundried Tomato.

This Dutch gouda is aged at least 4 months. The sundried tomatoes and chives mix is applied to the cut side of the cheese and the flavors are slowly but surely migrating into the Gouda cheese.

This Gouda with Sundried Tomato is refined (affine) and this cheese tomato combination is easy to use in your recipes. Think about pasta, pizza, fondue, bruschetta. Or simply on toast or crackers with your favorite drink.
