Northern California’s Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company secured top honors at the 30th annual World Cheese Awards in London last month, taking home a prestigious best-in-category Super Gold Award for its Point Reyes Bay Blue.
“There are so many outstanding cheeses in this global competition, it is a complete honor to come away with three awards… and of course, we are especially thrilled Bay Blue won Super Gold,” said Head Cheese Maker Kuba Hemmerling, in a press release.
In addition to the top prize in its category, the company’s Point Reyes Toma earned a Bronze Award and Original Blue won a Silver Award, securing three awards from a field of over 3,000 entries from 35 different countries.
“Competing on the world stage and being recognized for excellence makes us so proud,” Co-Owner Lynn Giacomini Stray added. “We work incredibly hard to make the highest-quality cheese; these awards are a testament to our focus and commitment.”
