Gold - The World Cheese Awards Winners' Selection
Simply the best. A cheeseboard filled with Gold and Super Gold medal winners from the 2023 World Cheese Awards.
Gift wrap available.
We recommend a portion size of 70-120g per person depending on when you are eating the cheese. 70g is ample if you are serving the cheese immediately after a large meal or as part of a buffet. If the cheese is the main part of the meal you will need to allow at least 100g per person and you may prefer to go to 120g if you think your guests will be particularly hungry (or just very fond of cheese!).
However, if you are only a small party, you may find that the pieces look a little small. In this case, choose fewer pieces, or even just one cheese, so that you can present your guests with something that looks more substantial. If you want to provide a wider choice of cheeses, just go for slightly larger pieces and enjoy the leftovers yourself the next day.

The 2023 World Cheese Awards were held in Trondheim, Norway, on the 27th of October. The world’s leading experts in their field assessed 4502 cheeses based on their appearance, texture, aroma and flavour. Each team of three judges awarded the best cheeses they tried with a Gold medal and then went on to choose just one Super Gold. The cheeses in this selection were all awarded these highly prestigious and coveted accolades and can truly be considered among the world’s best cheeses.
MINI WIGMORE (top left)
180g – Sheep, Thermised, Vegetarian
Supergold. Placed 16th.
Delicate and creamy sheep’s milk cheese with a gentle flavour. Its heavenly texture and delicacy make this cheese of real refinement.
PECORINO RISERVA AL TARTUFO BIANCO (bottom right)
200g - Sheep, Pasteurised
Intense and aromatic, with the heady notes of truffle perfectly balanced by undertones of spice and garlic.
SINODUN HILL (middle)
200g – Goat, Pasteurised, Vegetarian
Supergold. Placed 12th.
Best British Cheese and Best Cheese made by a member of the Specialist Cheesemakers’ Association.
Sinodun Hill cheese is sweet, almondy and complex, with a thin, beautifully wrinkly coat that develops natural spots of blues, greys and greens over time.
CORNISH YARG (bottom right)
250g - Cow, Pasteurised, Vegetarian
A nettle-wrapped cheese with a fresh and clean taste. The cheese is loosely based on a Caerphilly recipe, and the name comes from the original cheese maker, Alan Gray (Yarg backwards), who reportedly found the recipe in his attic.
AFFINEUR WALO RED WINE FARMER (bottom left)
250g - Cow, Raw Milk
A full-flavoured, wine-washed mountain-style cheese, Affineur Walo Red Wine Farmer packs a serious punch.
