Handeck Cheese is a handcrafted washed-rind cow's milk cheese that is produced using the same methods as a typical Swiss mountain style cheese. It is available at 24 months old. It is delicately aged on cedar wood planks adding robust flavors to the cheese. It is a drier hard cheese with very rich and complex flavors and nutty overtones.
Pairs well with red wines such as Pinot Noir and also dark roasted beers. Gunn’s Hill is a small, artisanal dairy located in Woodstock. Shep Ysselstein crafts small-batch cheeses made with a marked Swiss influence sourcing the milk for their line of cheeses from his family farm.
