Wisconsin Feta

Feta cheese is a tasty ingredient crafty chefs use to spice up many dishes. Wisconsin cheesemakers make excellent Feta using cow's milk. Fresh Feta is packaged in brine to help preserve the cheese. To reduce the salt content of Feta, rinse the cheese in cold water or milk prior to serving. There are many varieties of Feta, including herbs and dill, tomato, basil, black pepper, and garlic, to name just a few.


Almost always salty and tangy, Feta is mild and creamy when young, becoming peppery and complex with age.

Goes Well With:

Pita bread, vegetables, and olives.

Pairs Well With:

Pilsner, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Weiss Beer.
