What's On

Cheese of the Month

On October 18th 2019, Rogue River Blue was named World Champion at the World Cheese Awards in Bergamo, Italy, beating 3,800 of the world’s finest cheeses from 42 countries on 6 continents.

This Rogue River Special Reserve Blue is especially produced for the Australian market and is only available once a year. Made with milk from Brown Swiss and Holstein cows sourced during the autumnal equinox and before the winter solstice.
A true artisan cave-aged blue from Central Point, Oregon, in the USA, with centuries-old Basque and Provencal techniques, these rounds are lovingly hand-wrapped in local Carpenter Hill Vineyard Syrah leaves and is macerated in Clear Creek Pear Brandy.

Unlike most blues cheeses that are aged for 3 months, Rogue River Blue is matured for at least a year - the well-aged, developed cheese has a moist, creamy & marbled texture with a strong but not overpowering blue mould flavour that finishes with an extraordinary fruity aftertaste and a hint of pear brandy reminiscent of Christmas pudding.
