Cheesemaker wins fourth World Championship


A small Swiss mountain creamery has won its fourth World Champion Cheese award and third in a row. 

Michael Spycher makes cheese at Mountain Dairy Fritzenhaus for Gourmino cheese in Bern, Switzerland.  His Hornbacher cheese is named for the river that flows by the creamery.  It scored 98.98 out of 100 possible points to top the 3,302 entries in this year’s contest.

Gourmino’s Joe Salonia was in Madison, Wisconsin Thursday when the champion was named.  He tells Brownfield the cheese is made with milk from small, nearby farms.
