Marieke Gouda is an award-winning raw cow's milk cheese produced on a Dutch family-owned farm in Wisconsin. It is carefully cured on imported Dutch pine planks in temperature- and humidity-controlled aging cellar for nine months, producing a rich, full flavor with caramel overtones. Its creamy texture with crystallization deposits pairs well with a spicy red or Zinfandel.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
