Grand Cru Surchoix cheese

Just like Champagne can only be made in the Champagne region of France, Gruyere can only be made in the Gruyere region of Switzerland. Now, to honor the traditions of time-honored Gruyere, we call Grand Cru an Alpine-style classic.

Grand Cru Surchoix is made with the freshest milk in imported copper vats and aged in our cellars for at least 4 months. Robust and full-bodied, this award-winning cheese melts beautifully to become a cook’s best friend.

Pairing suggestions: Apple cider, cornichons (pickled gherkins), Simple & Crisp fruit crisps.
