In the 100-year-old warehouse on the Oude Rijn river in Woerden, the Reypenaer cheeses are matured in an entirely natural way. Over time, this process leads to the distinctive and complex taste with its exceptional aroma that characterises these artisan cheeses.In the Reypenaer Cheese Tasting Rooms in the centre of old Amsterdam, you can personally test and evaluate the flavour, the aroma and the qualities of the Reypenaer cheeses, all under the guidance of an expert cheese taster.Each cheese tasting session lasts approximately one hour, and caters for a maximum of 20 people per tasting.

Great thing about this tasting was delicious cheese and also paired with some really good wines. They've thought through what goes with what. The cheeses are fantastic... I think you get to sample 6 or 7 varieties. Some are cow's milk and others goat's milk....More

I would prefer having more diverse information on the cheese tasting and cheese production culture than that provided during the tasting. The process itself was funny and the hosts tried their best.

Me and my partner had great time tasting good quality homemade cheese. Pared really nice with wine. Jokye (our teacher ☺) was funny and really knowledgeable. We definitely recommend this tour.
