Roelli Cheese Haus
Four Generations of Fine Cheese
Roelli Cheese Haus is located East of Shullsburg, Wisconsin on State Highway 11 and has a family tradition of making hand-crafted specialty cheese for nearly 100 years. Adolph Roelli came to this area of Lafayette County Wisconsin from Switzerland in the 1920s. From that time, four generations of the Roelli family have been in the cheese business at this location, building on Adolph’s commitment to quality, service, and customer satisfaction. This long-standing commitment continues to be the cornerstone of our business.
Chris is currently hand crafting and cellar curing small batches of original recipe cheeses including his Award winning Dunbarton Blue, Red Rock and Little Mountain, as well as fresh curds, aged cheddars, Farmhouse Colby-style, Monterey Jack, Havarti, Cheshire inspired and Alpine style cheeses. Chris is a partner in ownership of Roelli Cheese Co., Inc. which also includes a retail store and milk hauling business. In 2012 he opened his own state of the art aging cellar that can hold one year’s worth of his production. In 2015 Chris became one of Wisconsin’s distinguished Master Cheesemakers, his first certification in cheddar. Now in 2018 has completed two additional Master certifications in blue-style and alpine-style cheeses.
