The Wisconsin-based competition featured hundreds of entrants from the world’s finest cheesemakers.
“BellaVitano Gold really is a special cheese for us,” said master cheesemaker Mike Matucheski. “It all starts on the farm, where our patron farm families produce the best rBST-free certified milk possible. Then it’s off to the plant where we turn fresh milk into cheese typically within hours.”
In addition to BellaVitano Gold’s Grand Champion award, it also took first place in the Hard Cheese category at the contest.
