Le Gruyere AOP

Le Gruyere is an AOP (Protected Designation of Origin) Swiss cheese from the region of Gruyère, where cheese has been in production since at least 1115. It’s safe to say these affineurs know what they’re doing! The cheese is made only from the raw milk of cows fed with natural forage (grass in the summer, and hay in the winter), has no additional additives, and the milk producers are all located close to the cheese dairy where they deliver milk every morning and evening. This is a truly epic cheese, well deserving of the many accolades and awards it has received through the years.
