GOLD MEDAL, 2014 NANTWICH CHEESE AWARDS


From Affineur Walo , this pungent cheese, washed in local red wine, has a full-throttle flavour.
Recognisably Swiss, with a sweet creamy back note and silky-smooth texture, its rich and powerful taste grows in your mouth.

Red Wine Farmer has the strongest flavor of the Affineur Walo cheeses offered by us. It is relatively small at between 6 and 7 kg.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 7 – 8 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. It has split
the team at FCC: those that love it and can’t get enough, and those that find it just that bit too strong. More people are in the former camp, but be assured you will never be ambivalent about the Red Wine Farmer!

Makes extraordinary cheese on toast.

Every piece freshly cut & wrapped

We unashamedly source, care for and sell the best cheese, because that is what we believe in. Every day of dispatch one of our trained cheesemongers cuts every piece fresh, by hand, and wraps it in our waxed paper. We do this because it is most respectful way to treat this precious food.
