A SMALL COUNTRY, A GREAT CULTURAL TRADITION
Cheese making has long been a tradition in Switzerland and cheese production forms an integral part of this country’s culture.
The craft of the cheese maker permeates Swiss culture, informing folk songs and influencing native art, infusing cultural customs and shaping landscapes; the symbols and rituals of this time-honored trade are deeply etched into Switzerland’s heritage.
The very landscape of this country owes its appearance to the art of cheese. The lush Alpine pastures and picturesque mountains are not merely pleasant panoramas: this terrain is ideal for the free-ranging cattle herds and robust rural communities that uphold the cheese making tradition and who enable Switzerland’s best-loved export.
Carved from the mountainside, this huge, temperate cheese chamber is the ideal place in which to mature our cheeses to perfection.
