DISCOVER A CHARACTER OF EXCELLENCE
The rocky cave walls of the enormous Ursy cheese chamber retain high levels of humidity and maintain a constant year-round temperature of 55.4 - 57.2° F. Every week the cheese is checked, tested, sampled, and subjected to the strictest quality and hygiene controls. It is only here that these cheeses can acquire such noble notes. Cavern specialty cheeses ripened in the Ursy cave enjoy renown far beyond the boundaries of their Swiss homeland. At the heart of their success lies the know-how of expert, local cheese makers and their cherished mountain grotto with its exceptional, temperate environment. It is here, in the very core of the Swiss mountainside, that Cavern cheeses gain their strength and character of excellence.
In order for Cavern cheeses to reach the table in peak condition, they must leave the Ursy cave at precisely the right moment; only the Master Cheese Maker can decide the end of the maturation process and declare when the cheeses are ready to leave the cave.
As with all fine products patiently matured over time, the Cavern range of cheeses is infused with all the flavor of the pastures from which they originate – the distinct taste of authenticity.
