Over the past few years, Sartori Bellavitano cheese has been honored with over 200 awards, medals and ribbons at the most competitive and prestigious cheese contests and competitions around the globe. This delicious cheese is made in Wisconsin and has been honored with such awards as “The Best New Cheese in the World” at the World Cheese Awards in Dublin, Ireland, and as the “Grand Champion” – awarded to the best cheese in the USA at the US Cheese Championships, among many." Our cheese department now has stock of:
Merlot BellaVitano - is a unique Cheddar-Parmesan inspired Italian cow’s milk cheese immersed in fine Merlot wine to give it extra tang and a delicious merlot flavour. The liquor marination adds hints of berry and plum to the nutty, fruity flavours of this rich, creamy masterpiece."
Espresso - "As a delicious treat for your breakfast or dessert, we hand-rub freshly roasted espresso into sweet, sugary BellaVitano wheels aged to creamy perfection. We thank our artisan craft-roasting friends for getting up early to make the coffee and helping us open the judges’ eyes at the World Cheese awards this year."
Whiskey - "Full of spirit and a smooth sweetness, Tennessee Whiskey meets out rich, creamy BellaVitano in this new classic cheese. Breathe in that clear country air and savor the sweet life."
Balsamic - "An absorbing Sartori discovery: The sweet, nutty, fruity flavors of our most-sought-after BellaVitano become even more desirable when blessed with a few prized drops of Modena balsamic vinegar. By gently bathing BellaVitano Gold in balsamic, cheesemaker Mike Matucheski has given it a sweet coating that burnishes the legend of BellaVitano with yet another honor from the World Cheese Awards."
Chardonnay - "Bright and buttery Chardonnay compliments our creamy BellaVitano in this wine-inspired creation, sending your taste buds on a trip straight to France."
