Danbo

Danbo cheese is perhaps the ‘signature cheese’ of Hohepa Hawkes Bay. Danbo is a distinctive cow’s milk cheese based on the Danish Danbo. The distinctive flavour and texture makes our Danbo a very popular choice with customers — with variations in the form of Herb and Cumin-seed added options. This balance between the herbs and Danbo cheese is perfection in itself.

Danbo is available in various stages of maturity — a mild cheese at the younger age through to a tasty cheese (10 months maturing or more). The aged tasty cheese has more pronounced holes through it and has a deeper colour and even more flavour and character!

The taste is reminiscent of macaroni cheese with a suggestion of tomatoes and olive oil in the background — fabulous.
