And the widespread adoration.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth and rich.
Flavor: Mild and approachable
Pair with Chardonnay or late-harvest Riesling and a baguette.
Serve on a cheeseboard with candied nuts, dried fruit or pepper jelly and charcuterie.
The freshest cow’s milk is first pasteurized and cooled to the perfect temperature for bacteria to do their best work. The milk is then fortified with Penicillium Candidum. Vegetarian rennet is added, coagulating the milk and creating a stronger curd mass bond, faster, which is then cut into cubes, stirred, drained of whey, stirred again, then drained again. From there, it’s scooped into molds, brined, and aged. During this time, you’ll find our makers regularly flipping the cheese (yes, by hand) to ensure even moisture and rind development. The result is a rich, buttery flavor and texture that would make France’s Saint Andre proud.
