25th Annual Conference, American Cheese Society's, Best in show Second Runner Up, and winner.
Grayson hails from Meadow Creek Farms in the hills of southwestern Virginia. An outstanding washed-rind, cow's milk cheese, Grayson takes its cues from the old world with a square form like Taleggio and a pâte akin to Chimay. Grayson has the pungent savoriness of both - it starts off tangy, fresh, and sweet, and finishes as warm and smooth as butter. Pair this cheese with Cabernet, Sangiovese, or Gewurztraminer.
