Tasting workshops take place every Monday and Tuesdays from 13.00H till 15.00H Wednesday to Sunday throughout the day from 12.00H to 17.00H. The Connoisseur workshop costs €15.00 Per person.

Great to have experienced the Reypenaer cheese tour & wine pairing. We were very lucky to have found this tour and would do it again.

Really enjoyed this experience, it was nice and relaxed. The host is funny and very informative. We learnt loads of facts about the cheese and the way they are all made. We got to try 6 types of cheese with matching wines. I felt it was good value for money and one of the better things we did in Amsterdam.

There were two other couples in our group and everyone was very friendly.We tasted six different cheeses and several wines. It was interesting to see how the flavors of the wine and... More

We were on our last day in Amsterdam and went to 2 other cheese shops, none of which did a cheese tasting. We arrived right on 12 and they managed to squeeze us in for the cheese and wine session. The owner was very knowledgeable about his cheeses and the session was very informative and a bit of fun. The... More

Was in Amsterdam only a short time and I'd read about Reypenaer and wanted to make it one of the two things I was able to do there. I was not disappointed -- the hostess for the event was knowledgeable and fun; the cheese was delicious and I left feeling that I'd learned about cheese as well as tasting some... More

We found this place after a bit of research as it's easy to fall into turist traps in places like Amsterdam and I can really recommend it. The tasting was really fun (as long as you are okay with the odd pretentious comment) and the cheese was out of this world. I really enjoyed the wine pairings and finding out... More
