Red Wine Farmer Cheese by Affineur Walo
This cheese is the byproduct of two traditional farmhouse activities: turning excess milk into cheese and fermenting grapes into wine for the home. Red Wine Farmer Cheese by Affineur Walo is a typical Swiss semi-hard cheese, similar to Gruyere or Appenzeller. It has a firm, sliceable body that is coated in a natural, pebbly rind. This cheese is selected by Affineur Walo from different dairies in the eastern part of Switzerland and matured to perfection. The maturation for 10 months with repeated washing of red wine help to develop the rind and produce an aromatic and slightly pungent aroma. The cheese takes on a growing sharpness with aging, which is reinforced by the tannins from the wine. Savory and slightly fruity, this is the perfect cheese to enjoy with family and friends over a bottle of local wine. Or try it melted over a gratin or bowl of soup, as you would Gruyere.

It is the passion of the Von Muhlenen Family to select the best cheese in Switzerland from artisan cheese makers, matured to perfection. For the maturation they choose for each style of cheese special cellars with an appropriate climate and cheese ripening cultures. With a range of cellars and aging caves spread across Switzerland, they are able to provide a unique aging environment that brings out the best qualities of each cheese. You can trust the quality of Affineur Walo. As part of their family's pride, they will never release a cheese that is not perfectly aged. The high quality standard has resulted in many awards, the most prestigious are the three world champion titles at the World cheese Awards in 1992, 2002 and 2005 and in the 2006 Wisconsin Judging. These are only the top awards, joining multiple medals awarded in specific categories.
