This 80lb. wheel of cheese is made from the province area of Savoie in the French Alps. It is created from the milk of cows known as Tarines, a herd of animals that originally came from Indo-Asia and crossed into central Europe centuries ago. In order to produce such fine quality of cheese, special care is taken for these cows. During the winter, they are kept warm in sheds and are not allowed to eat any silage or other fermented fodder, according to the rules of the AOC. Beaufort “winter” is white in color, unlike Beaufort “summer” which is yellow. This Schmidhauser Beaufort cheese is made industrially by large corporations and by hand in small farms. It's fat content is 36.3%. Very similar to Gruyere, it goes well with white wine.
