From Italy's Lombardy region, we present Mountain Gorgonzola, a sharp and tangy cheese. Like many cheeses, this cheese takes its name from the local town where it was created, Gorgonzola, just south of Milan. There, a simple fresh cheese was made for generations, until a few forgotten wheels were found to have turned blue with mold. This edible mold was a natural part of the terroir, coming from the local caves of Valsassina. Upon tasting the moldy cheese, the local dairymen found it to be delicious, and allowed their wheels to go moldy on purpose. Thus Stracchino di Gorgonzola, Italy's most famous blue cheese, was born.

Today the cheese is more well-known than the town, and not without reason. Made of cow's milk, this thick, sliceable blue has a fudgey texture and gentle blue bite. Not as sharp as Roquefort or as pungent as Stilton, Mountain Gorgonzola is a consistently delightful cheese that will convert even non-blue cheese eaters into fans. As it ages, the 14 lb drums of cheese are gently washed with a saltwater brine, allowing the cheese to stay moist and smooth. This also gives Mountain Gorgonzola its thin, pinkish-red rind. With its white interior laced with streaks of blue, Mountain Gorgonzola is an attractive table cheese and a savory ingredient in your favorite salad. Gorgonzola takes very well to fruits, especially figs and pears. Or try it the Italian way- alone on a plate drizzled with honey.

  • Whole form is 14 pounds.

Avoid the sometime harshness of Blue Cheese
This is stuff is great. Maybe a bit overripe but very good nonetheless. 2# is a lot for just two of us but we think we can make it.

The best of blue cheeses
One of my very favorite cheeses. For a milder taste, I like to mix it occasionally with mayonnaise.

Just What I was Hoping For
I never expected to find another Gorgonzola like the one I had years ago that is no longer available. Mountain Gorg met and exceeded my expectations. Everything I love in a Gorg, tart, salty and melt in your mouth.

Fresh and Blue!
This is a delight, mild creamy white cheese that is a lovely introduction to blue cheese or perfect as a first taste on a blue cheese board. The blue has a pleasant bite, not too strong but not bland either. It's a "just right" on the Goldilocks scale.

better than expected
It's like a blue cream cheese. The creamy taste comes through. Salty but most cheeses are. Very good with garlic as a dressing on vegetables raw or cooked. Easy on the gut. Having it daily!

My Search is Over
Like many other reviewers, I am a long-time blue cheese fan who has tasted well over 30 types of blue cheese. I don't like earthy or mushroomy blues. In the past, my go-to blues were Maytag (unavailable due to recall) and Blue Castello Extra Creamy (two of my last three orders were sour). My last order consisted of four different blue cheeses, but I would gladly trade the other three for Buttermilk Blue. The cheese is white, soft (fudge-like consistency) and has the perfect bite. You can spread it on crackers, and although others have said they sliced it, my slices stuck to the knife and didn't hold their shape. However, after I popped it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, I was able to slice it. This cheese is my new favorite blue, ans I unequivocally recommend it.. It's also a great value compared to most other blues.
