America's Most-Awarded Cheese. Exceptional milk makes exceptional cheese. Pleasant Ridge Reserve is an alpine-inspired cheese (think Gruyere, Appenzeller, Comte) made in Wisconsin. Influenced by the cheesemaking traditions of both Europe and Wisconsin, through methods that emphasize traditional grass-based dairying and seasonal raw milk, this cheese is a must-try. It's only made in the summer when cows eat fresh grass, then aged up to two years. The cheese has a firm texture and rich flavor, with notes of grass, cured meat, salt, caramel, and fruit.
This is the only cheese to have won 'Best in Show' at the American Cheese Society's annual competition 3 times, against thousands of other cheeses. A bucket list cheese for food-lovers everywhere. Complex and thought-provoking: Pleasant Ridge Reserve is an American standout cheese to rival any of Europe’s greats.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can purchase an entire wheel of approx. 10 pounds.
Ingredients:raw, non-GMO cow's milk, rennet, cultures, salt.
