Gruyère d’Alpage AOP is a hard cow’s milk cheese, from Switzerland that follows the Gruyère AOP specifications of 2001. The Gruyère d’Alpage is only produced during the summer months as the cows must graze on Alpine pasture in specific areas, the Fribourg Canton for this one, to get the AOP certification.
Aged for a minimum of 12 months, our Gruyère d’Alpage has a fruity and complex floral character with a subtle nuttiness and melts in mouth texture.
Ideal for classic fondues, or, sliced and consumed on its own and paired with a glass of light red wine, some walnuts and cold cuts.
After opening, wrap the original packaging tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil for up to 3 weeks.
Red wines (Cotes de Beaune, Beaujolais)
