CaveAged Cheeses

Long ago, underground caves created the ideal environment for aging cheese. … Cave and cellar-aged cheeses ripen in environments naturally more humid and develop rinds on their own, resulting in a dry, moldy crust, and flavorful interiors.

Different Types of Cave-Aged Cheese
  • Cheddar. Cheese maturing in the caves at Cheddar Gorge.
  • Gruyere. A maturation of Gruyère cheese, Gruyères, Switzerland.
  • Manchego. Manchego cheese.
  • Grana Padano. A storehouse of Italian cheese Grana Padano.
