Excellent cheese

Great cheese and lots of fun. You learn a lot about how it is made and what drinks go best with the cheese. Lots of fun and you get 15%off in the shop after!

We wanted to do a cheese and wine tasting while vacationing in Amsterdam. We chose Reypenaer Cheese Tasting Room and had a wonderful experience. We had no problem booking a time. We learned a little history about the cheese and enjoyed experiencing the different flavors when paired with different wine. Definitely would recommend! My husband, daughter (21) and I attended.

The cheese was SO GOOD, especially the two goats cheese varieties at the beginning. Our guide was very encouraging, knowledgeable about the company and open... More

This tasting by one of the best known Dutch cheese manufacturers offers a good variety of the traditional cheeses. Together with matching wines you are given a good introduction of what Dutch cheese is all about. Highly recommended!

I pre booked tickets for the cheese and wine tasting and I'm glad we did! The cheese is delicious and different to all the other cheese shops in the area, which basically all sell the same stuff. My favourite is the goats cheese. The expert who led the tasting was very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about cheese, wine and... More

The atmosphere was great and the Reypenaer was very nice and funny. We got to taste 6 different cheeses and drink 3 glasses of wine, but you can drink even more. The amount of cheese is beyond satisfying and tastes really good, and you can totally skip launch. Thank you :)
