Sbrinz is considered the "Father of Hard Cheeses." It first received its international legal protection for its making in 1957. This raw milk cheese comes in large 90-pound wheels and, while similar to Parmigiano Reggiano, Sbrinz is made with whole milk rather than skimmed milk. This gives this magnificent cheese a smoother, nuttier and deeper flavor. Sbrinz can age gracefully for eight years or more, giving the cheese an increasingly graceful and expansive flavor profile with a fine granular texture. Sbrinz is a marvelous pairing partner for a range of wines from an oaky Chardonnay to full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Please note: Because our cheeses are cut by hand exact weights may vary slightly.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
