Shop all of our amazing Alpine cheeses, from the beloved French Comte Gruyere to the American Tarentaise, we have a delicious and ever-expanding selection of cheeses to choose from! One of the only true field-to-table foods, Alpine cheese is made in a manner referred to as transhumance. It begins as the cows graze their way across the Alpine mountain range. Starting at lower elevations in the Spring, and moving higher and higher as Summer arrives. Finally, the cows make their way back down the mountainside as the weather begins to cool. With the variations in temperature due to the changes in microclimates and the wide range of grasses the cows consume, their milk develops a terroir much the same as a fine wine. Thanks to all this, the cheeses made from their milk boast a wide range of flavors. In pursuit of the finest cheese possible, these herds of cattle are followed through the mountains by cheesemakers. Cheese is then made on the spot, in small huts strategically set up throughout the mountain range. Traditionally made in wheels, these can range in size going all the way up to 220 pounds! For convenience sake, we offer both full wheels and portions to suit your needs. Though originally Alpine cheeses were only produced in countries that bordered the Alps, the tradition and techniques have spread across the world. We have tracked down the finest of these along with the classic European varieties for your culinary consideration.
