Ewenique is a 100% sheep milk cheese, initially firm but then becomes soft and smooth on the palate.
Texture & Flavor
This complex cheese boasts sweetness and flavors redolent of salted caramel and fresh vanilla beans with a slight hint of citrus to contrast the savory qualities of the sheep milk.
A velvety white paste and delicate, Gouda-like texture. Initially the cheese shows a firm texture but becomes soft and smooth on the palate to perfectly pair with our white wines.
Ewenique is a firm, waxed 100% sheep’s milk cheese originating in Holland using an original recipe from aged cheese specialty cheese-maker Reggie Jones.
Production was moved to the US in January 2018 where Ewenique is now aged for four months, developing a brilliant, velvety-white paste and a delicate texture.
After working for years in product development and quality control in industrial cheese production settings, cheese-maker Reggie Jones finally decided to branch off on his own and pursue small-scale artisanal production. Today he specializes in producing aged cheeses that are handmade in small batches using local California milk and organic ingredients.
Availability, Ordering and Shipping
Sourced from creameries all over the world many of our cheeses are from small family-owned, alpine farms and only produced in limited quantities or at one-time each year. We take most of their production which goes straight out to our club members.
Our cheeses are sold in an 8 ounce cut. When ordering more please use “quantity” in multiples of 8 ounces i.e., for one pound order a quantity of 2.
Because our cheese club members take precedence we may have limited inventory of some cheese products. If you order a cheese that is unavailable our customer service team will contact you with delivery details or a substitute cheese product.
Your cheese selections are individually wrapped, carefully packed in a thermal container with “cool” ice packs and then sealed in an insulated shipping box. All cheese shipments are sent via overnight air to arrive fresh and cool at your home or office.
We search the world for fresh, natural cheeses made from milk produced by family-owned, free grazing animals and crafted by artisan, quality-focused cheese makers. Each year we choose only the best cheeses to pair for our wine and cheese club members to enjoy.
