We started with the easiest cheese recipe we could find. As we grew our cheese making knowledge and experience, we changed the recipe to fit our cheese making style. The result is a sensational cheese. Our children’s Uncle Joe offered us a bottle of vintage homemade wine for a special finish. We named this cheese in his honor. We’ve made more cheese than he made wine. Now we use Vineyard at Grandview’s Sapphire White to wash the rinds giving us a unique taste that no one else can copy. When it is young, the cheese flavor is supplemented by the fruity flavor of the wine. Now that we are aging it longer, we compare it to an aged asiago.
