England – England has a rich cheese heritage. Cheddar and Stilton are among the country's best-known cheese. Stilton cheese not only forms an important role in a traditional British Christmas dinner, but is made from local milk and exclusively in the counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire.
Greece – Greece is the purveyor of one of the world's most-loved cheeses: feta. In 2005, the EU ruled that Greece has exclusive rights to the cheese, meaning no other country can produce the salad favorite.
The Netherlands – Gouda is named for the Dutch city from which it is produced. It is one of the world's most popular cheeses.
Italy – Italy may not be the only country that produces mozzarella, but it is known for producing some of the best in the world. At the Tenuta Vannulo dairy farm in Capaccio (pictured), the water buffalo that produce the milk for the cheese get VIP treatment, including rub downs, a jazz soundtrack and an organic diet.
France – France produces hundreds of different types of cheeses. Brie and Camembert are among the most popular. In addition to cheese produced on local farms, in dairies and in factories are cheeses produced in abbeys.
