Wisconsin cheesemakers win international awards

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Two Wisconsin cheese-makers each won a pair of top prizes at the recent World Cheese Awards in England.

Carr Valley of LaValle won Super Gold Awards for its "Billy Blue" and "Cave-Aged Marisa" cheeses. Sartori of Plymouth received the same honors for its "Limited edition Pastorale Blend" and its "Reserve Cinnamon Rubbed Bella-Vitano" cheeses. All told, Wisconsin cheese producers won 24 awards in the fourth annual contest, which was part of the Good Food Show put on by England's B-B-C broadcasting group.

Wisconsin had the best showing of any U-S state.

The contest attracted close to 3,000 entries, and about 80,000 people tasted the various cheeses after the judging was over.
