History about the Gouda

In the Netherlands, archeologists have discovered equipment for producing cheese that dates back to 200 BC. That’s over 2,000 years of cheesemaking tradition. The classic cheese Gouda, has been made since at least 1184, making it one of the oldest recorded cheeses still being crafted today.

Cheese starts with milk, and milk begins with livestock. Holland’s abundant green grasses and mild temperatures make it a perfect environment for cows, which graze on the country’s lush pastures.

Gouda is named after a town in southern Holland—the town where the cheese was distributed, not where it was made. In the Middle Ages, certain municipalities held exclusive rights to weigh and sell cheese. Gouda was one of these towns.

 Gouda fast became a hub for cheesemakers and farmers to bring their wares, where the cheese would be weighed and sold in the town square.
The tradition still continues to this day on Thursday mornings during the summer months, when wheels of Gouda wrapped in wax rinds are proudly displayed on the city’s ancient cobblestones.

 

Enjoy this cheese with a delicious Pinot Noir from Burgundy such as Hautes Cotes de Nuits.
