Bleu de Combremont, S/O 3/3# $/#
In the idyllic village of Combremont-le-Petit in western Switzerland at 665 m above sea level. M., Michael has realized his dream of his own cheese dairy. With a lot of love and work, the cheese dairy from around 1851, which was in need of renovation, was brought back to life. The processes and procedures could be individually tailored to his needs, so that he can optimally use his craft day after day.
In Michael we have found a new cheesemaker who fits both the philosophy and the quality strategy of Gourmino and who can identify with it. Here, traditional craftsmanship is combined with modern and efficient production processes. This results in a high quality and consistently storable Le Gruyère AOP.
In addition to the traditional Gruyère, Michael also likes to live out his creative streak and is increasingly trying out new cheese specialties. He did this extremely well with the Bleu de Combremont.
Gourmino belongs to the cheesemakers. Our skills lie in the affinage of long ripened cheeses made from raw milk. We use only the best quality cheeses selected from our own dairies. Our dairies are family businesses that use fresh milk supplied daily by local farmers. The cheese makers not only care passionately about their craft, they also have the necessary experience spanning years of excellent work and life in cheese. The sale of our products provides an inspiration for the future of our cheese makers and their families. All our work together embodies the highest representation of Swiss cheesemaking.
An uncompromising quality strategy is the basis for the affinage
of long-ripened raw-milk cheeses – that is our specialty.
Traditional handcraft, generations of experience, careful, local
processing of fresh raw milk, rich flowering pastures, and
milk from happy cows are the basis for the perfect quality of
the cheese – these are the values and traditions we want to maintain
Gourmino is owned and operated by its cheesemakers.
We celebrate handcrafted cheeses from our own Switzerland Mountain and Village Dairies.
Our special talent is the cheese selection and affinage in our Emmental cellars and inside our Mountain Bunkers.
Our cheese selection always comes from the same Mountain and Village Dairies.
Our cheese provides unique stories and added values for the passionate cheese counter.
Gourmino’s common vision of “Cheese Crafted for the Connoisseur” is captured in the illustration on this card.
