Marieke® Gouda Belegen 4-6: Expert, Licensed cheesemaker, Marieke Penterman and her team, handcraft traditional Dutch Goudas using the time-tested, Old World, cheesemaking methods Marieke brought with her when she emigrated from the Netherlands. Marieke transforms farmstead-fresh, raw, cow’s milk from her family farm into award-winning cheese, which is then carefully cured on imported Dutch pine planks in temperature and humidity-controlled aging cellars. Smooth and mellow with hints of toasted nuts.

Pair with Cornichons, Prosciutto, Bock beer or Pinot Grigio.
