Gruyère is one of the world's most savored cheeses, made from recipes dating back to 1155 AD. To earn the Le Gruyère AOP label, strict guidelines are followed. The farmer insures that the cows are fed on a naturally sustainable diet – pastured grass in the summer and hay in the winter. The cheese is made only in copper vats, which allow quick temperature changes and impart a unique, complex character. As the cheese slowly matures in special cellars, every wheel is delicately turned, lightly brined and brushed. This careful process brings out Gruyère's distinctive flavor, with notes of candied walnuts, dried fruit and spice.
