While on vacation in April in Amsterdam, we went to the Reypenaer Wine and Cheese Tasting. The staff is very knowledgeable and the tasting was both educational and fun. We had a great time learning about their various cheeses and their dedication to tradition. And, the cheese was delicious! Definitely a highlight of our vacation and I would go again... More

The cheese tasting classes held downstairs are terrific: we highly recommend planning and reserving your slots early. The hour-long class explains a bit about the company and some of the highlights of cheese-making. Then the guided tasting begins. We tried half a dozen cheeses, primarily differing in how long they've been aged. We paired ours with whiskey, but in retrospect,... More

We signed up for the English version of the Reypenaer Cheese Tasting and it was a marvelous experience. Our instructor was very good at explaining the various tastes (like describing wine or olive oil, but with cheese) and also helping us see/taste/smell how the cheese "finish" varies with various wine and port pairings. A great value and a great experience.

Loved this -- overslept after arriving but managed to just make it to for my early afternoon cheese tasting workshop. Informative, great pairings with wine and port. Knowledgeable and friendly folks. Highly recommend
