Carr Valley Cheese Announces 2018 World Cheese Award Wins

I once again have the honor of writing about award-winning cheeses! This time around it is Wisconsin-based Carr Valley Cheese Co. that took home 9 awards at this year’s World Cheese Awards. The competition, which takes place in Bergen, Norway, is hosted by the Guild of Fine Foods and is the largest “cheese-only” competition in the world.

Carr Valley was awarded “Super Gold” for its Cave Aged Marisa®, an artisan cheese made with local sheep milk, which is then carefully cave-aged for a complex and earthy flavor. This “Super Gold” status makes it one of the best 78 cheeses in the world. According to a company press release, Sid Cook, Owner and Master Cheesemaker, named this variety after his daughter, Marisa, because of its sweet, yet rambunctious qualities. He recommends pairing it with a big red wine or porter beer.

Sid Cook, Owner and Master Cheesemaker, Carr Valley Cheese Co.“We’ve been making Cave Aged Marisa for almost 19 years, and it’s still one of my favorites,” Cook said. “All of our employees contribute to the success of a product, so it’s exciting for the whole company when we take home awards, especially on a global stage.”
