Emmi Le Gruyere-Quarter Wheel
Le Gruyère has been crafted since the 12th century using the same recipe. Today more than 160 creameries in small villages throughout a designated area in Switzerland carry on this same tradition. Not only do farmers feed their cows a naturally sustainable diet of pasture grass in the summer and hay in the winter. Emmi’s cheesemakers also incorporate only the freshest milk supplied twice a day from nearby farms. They then craft exclusively in copper vats to impart a unique, complex character that connoisseurs crave. As Le Gruyére AOP slowly matures in the cave-like atmosphere of the cellars, each wheel is delicately turned, lightly brined and brushed. This brings out the inimitable flavor featuring notes of candied walnuts, dried fruit and spice.
