This year’s New Zealand Champions of Cheese Awards recognised 27 cheesemakers – old and new – with the four Supreme Champion awards being scooped by Kāpiti, Kerikeri’s Mahoe, Martinborough’s The Drunken Nanny and relative newcomer Nieuwenhuis Farmstead Cheese from Hawke’s Bay.
The trophies were given at a Gala Awards Dinner at SkyCity in Hamilton on Wednesday and followed judging of more than 310 cheeses from 35 cheese companies at Wintec in February.
