Description

Dorset Blue Vinny

Dorset Blue Vinny is a traditional blue cheese made near Sturminster Newton in Dorset, England, from skimmed cows’ milk, similar to a Stilton.

It is a hard, crumbly cheese. “Vinney” is a local Dorset term related to the obsolete word “vinew”, which means to become mouldy.

Another explanation has it that “vinny” is a corruption of “veiny”, referring to the blue veins running throughout the cheese.

While the cheese was a common farmhouse cheese in Dorset for hundreds of years, production nearly dried up after the Second World War, and was made in very small quantities on just a few farms.

Dorset Blue Cheese has been awarded Protected Geographical Status, ensuring only cheese originating from Dorset may use the name.

Local myth describes how in years gone by, due to its supposed illegal nature, Blue Vinny would be left on the doorstep of those who ordered it on the black market.
