After working for years in product development and quality control in industrial cheese production settings, cheesemaker Reggie Jones finally decided to branch off on his own and pursue small-scale artisanal production. He founded Central Coast Creamery in Paso Robles, CA in 2008. Today he specializes in producing aged cheeses that are handmade in small batches using local California milk and organic ingredients.

Central Coast Goat Cheddar is produced by hand in small batches using 100% goat’s milk. Reggie uses a proprietary blend of cultures in producing this cheese, which he then ages for three months. 

Tasting Notes

Paste is pure white with a smooth, pliable and velvety texture. Aromas are sweet and grassy, almost reminiscent of a gouda. Goat’s milk aromas come through on the palate, yet the cheese remains sweet with a strong, salty finish. 

Pairings

Pair it with a Sauvignon Blanc.
