Weinlëse Cheddar Blue Cheese

Weinlese Cheddar Blue CheeseWe are excited to be offering Weinlëse Cheddar Blue Cheese in our Imported Cheese Departments, available exclusively at Kowalski's!

This signature Cheddar Blue is the creation of Wisconsin cheesemaker Mike Brennenstuhl, who crafts it in small batches from an original recipe to form a smooth, creamy, golden Cheddar body that matures with etched blue-green veins. It is made from the exceptional milk of a few hand-selected, local and sustainable Wisconsin family farms. This complex cheese is noted for its sweet, fresh milk flavors that unfolds as a rich, mellow Cheddar, then finishes with a distinctively mild Blue flavor.

When Seymour Dairy Products and Red Barn Family Farms came together, these passionate partners created a cheese that had us talking. It was the combination of over 100 years of experience in hand-crafting true artisan cheeses with the heritage and excellence of the small Wisconsin dairy farm that created Wisconsin Original Weinlëse Cheddar Blue Cheese. They started with sustainably-sourced milk with no rBGH from small family farms that are certified by the American Humane Association and handcrafted small batches of cheese to bring about the perfect marriage of these two distinct cheeses.

"At the heart of every Red Barn Family Farm are the families that farm according to an old-fashioned ethic of stewardship," said Terry Homan, Red Barn's veterinarian and founder. "When you combine that with the expertise of Mike Brennenstuhl, award-winning cheese maker, and cultures from Weinlëse you get a cheese like no other."
