Buttery, savory and full of intense overtones of bacon in the finish, this seasonal delight is from the renowned Jasper Hill Farm in Greensboro Vermont.  It’s jaw dropping goodness is the perfect match for the very best time of the year.

- Martin Johnson, Cheesemonger


Notes from the farm:

WINNIMERE is a take on Jura Mountain classics like Vacherin Mont d’Or or Försterkäse. In keeping with tradition, this decadent cheese is made only during winter months when Jasper Hill’s Ayrshire cows are giving rich, hay-fed raw milk. Winnimere is named for the corner of Caspian Lake where the Kehlers’ grandfather had an ice fishing shack.

PAIRING AND SERVICE — Winnimere is best enjoyed by peeling a way a bit of the top rind and diving in with spoon and some friends. If portioning for retail, an effort should be made to sell the remainder of the wheel before day’s end. Pair with a smoky, meaty red wine or porter-style beer alongside some Vermont whey-fed bacon.
