Gourmet Cheeses

A Sampling of our Cheeses with Lauren's Recommended Wine Pairings
Prairie Breeze from Milton Creamery, Iowa 

This multi-award-winning Iowa cheddar is made from hand-milked cows from the nearby Amish community. Aged for a minimum of nine months, it is a crumbly, hybrid-style Alpine Cheddar with a perfect blend of sweet & nutty, with a sassy, medium-sharp finish.


Lauren's Recommended Pairings:
 A perfect cheese to round-out a cheese tray. Eat with Cabernet, Syrah, or French Chardonnay.
Aged Gouda from Frisian Farms, Iowa  

Another award-winning local cheese! This delicious cow's-milk Gouda has been aged 12-18 months and has the traditional aged Gouda harder rind. It is rich and smooth, complex and creamy, and finishes with a light sweetness.

Lauren's Recommended Pairings:
 Great on its own or with bubbles, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, or Picpoul.

Smoked Gouda from Holland

Smoked slowly in ancient, brick ovens over smoldering hickory chip embers, this sausage shaped cheese has an edible, brown rind and a creamy, yellow interior. It is perfect for impromptu picnics, party platters, or midnight snacks.  

Lauren's Recommended Pairings: Best beer pairings are: Brown or Pale Ales, Porters, and Stouts.  Best wine pairings: Champagne, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Beaujolais. For a pairing on the rocks, try Scotch or Brandy.
  
Jarlsberg from Norway 
A mild, semi-soft, part skim cheese made from cow's milk. It has a buttery, rich texture with a  mild, nutty flavor characterized by large, round holes. It is an all-purpose cheese, good for cooking, and great on snack trays with fresh grapes.
 
Lauren's Recommended Pairings:
Chenin Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, or a fruity Chardonnay.
