The name Raclette means 'scraper' and refers to a group of gourmet cheeses which are melted to make a traditional Swiss dish of the same name. These are mountain cheeses made originally in the Vallais region but are now produced throughout Switzerland. The French also produce a fine Raclette.

The texture of this Raclette, made from pasteurized part-skim cow's milk is smooth and melts easily. The aroma is rather strong and will remind you of a farm. The flavor is also rather strong, however that may depend a little bit of what you're used to, as many people find this cheese mild. Emmi's Raclette cheese is aged over 2 months and was a worthy recipient of a 3rd place at the 2012 competition of the American Cheese Society.

We also have a French raclette cheese, made from raw milk raclette, the artisanal Reading Raclette from Vermont.

We hand-cut and wrap a wheel in 3 sizes, a half wheel (approximately 6 pounds), a quarter wheel (3 pounds) or individual wedges of 1 pound.

Please note that wheels vary slightly in total weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the quarter and half wheels that you will receive.
