Rogue River Blue1/2 pound
Let's give a warm welcome back to the first and only American cheese to ever be named the World Champion at the World Cheese Awards in 2019! A seasonal staple in cheese cases across the country, this vegetarian-friendly organic cow's milk cheese is made by Rogue Creamery in Oregon and coveted by cheesemongers and cheese consumers alike. After almost 12 months of aging in their caves, the Rogue Creamery team carefully wraps each wheel in organic and biodynamic Syrah grape leaves that have been soaked in pear brandy. The result is a creamy, bright cheese with vanilla, woodsy, fruity, and even slightly bacon-y notes that you simply won't be able to get enough of.
But be careful, because there are a limited number of wheels released each year—so when it's gone, you'll have to wait until next September for another piece!
Rogue Creamery’s story begins in 1933 when an industrious entrepreneur from Portland, Oregon worked with the city of Central Point to create Southern Oregon’s first artisan creamery cooperative—the Rogue River Valley Co-op. Soon, two “cheese giants” took notice, including legendary cheesemaker, Tom Vella. Together with his partner, he transformed the small cooperative into a thriving cheese factory.
