Not one, not two—not even just three. Seven is the lucky number for Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company as the company recently announced it was honored with four silver medals and three bronze medals during this year’s competitive World Cheese Awards.
“We are thrilled with our outstanding performance at this year’s World Cheese Awards,” said Kuba Hemmerling, Vice President of Operations at Point Reyes Farmstead. “We are beyond proud of receiving four silvers and three bronze. These awards truly represent the hard work of our incredible cheese makers, who strive to make cheese fitting for the world stage every day, with every batch.”
Point Reyes took home silver awards for its Quinta, Gouda, Toma, and TomaTruffle offerings, while winning bronze awards for its TomaProvence, TomaRashi, and Bay Blue products. As noted in a press release, this year’s World Cheese Awards in Newport, Wales, saw a record-breaking number of 4,434 entries, with some of the best cheeses from around the globe competing head-to-head for recognition at one of the world’s largest cheese-only events.
This year, 900 companies representing 42 countries were scored based on appearance, aroma, body, and texture, with the majority of points awarded for flavor and mouthfeel.
“This really is the ‘World Cup of Cheese’ and a celebration of excellence in cheesemaking from around the globe,” commented Lesley Griffiths, the Minister for Rural Affairs of the Welsh Government and a Principal Global Partner of the World Cheese Awards.
