Product details

From Affineur Walo, Red Wine Farmer is a pungent cheese, washed in local red wine which gives it a full-throttle flavour. It makes extraordinary cheese on toast.

Recognisably Swiss, this Alpine cheese has a sweet, creamy back note and silky-smooth texture. It's a rich and powerful taste that grows in your mouth.

Red Wine Farmer has the strongest flavour of the Affineur Walo cheeses that we supply. It is relatively small: between 6-7kg. The smaller size is important to the development of the flavour as there is greater influence from the rind, which is washed in locally produced red wine throughout the seven to eight months of maturation.

Washing with red wine produces the classic aroma associated with all washed-rind cheeses, but the cheese is not washed so frequently so as to produce a sticky, ‘stinky’ rind; it simply imparts a pungent flavour to the recognisable Swiss sweetness. As a result, the flavour is more challenging than those of other Affineur Walo cheeses. 

Affineur Walo Red Wine Farmer was a gold medallist in the 2014 Nantwich Cheese Awards.

 *A whole Affineur Walo Red Wine Farmer weighs approximately 6kg. Smaller weights are a cut of a whole cheese.
