Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co. Original Blue

Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company's Original BlueTaste the terroir of this handcrafted, artisan cheese made by cheesemakers raised by Western Marin County dairy ranchers.

Point Reyes Original Blue is California’s only classic style blue cheese. It has an addictive flavor and is bold with hints of sweet milk and a peppery finish.

In August of 2000 the first wheels of Original Blue were introduced to Bay Area consumers, adding to a family legacy of farming that dates back well over 100 years. Since then, the selection of cheeses crafted by Point Reyes Cheese Company has grown.

Original Blue Tasting Notes
Milky white in color with blue-green veins throughout
Ultra-creamy texture with medium-strong blue mold flavor
Sweet, fresh milk with a medium-to-strong punch of blue flavor

Uses and pairing suggestions
Original Blue is great as a stand-alone table cheese, for topping salads, melting onto burgers and steak, mixing into pasta or risotto, incorporating into scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes, and so much more.

Pair with red wine like Cabernet and Zinfandel, where the fruit-forward berry flavors and a hint of spicy chocolate play nicely with the peppery finish of the cheese. Pair with malt-centric beers such as Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Hairy Eyeball and Imperial Stout. Last but certainly not least, Original Blue and vintage port are outstanding together!
