Le Gruyère AOP, the distinctive cheese hailing from Switzerland's French-speaking region, encapsulates the essence of gentle mountain blossoms and the captivating alpine herbs that define the area. Its roots extend to the year 1115 when the milk harvested from the  villages of the Gruyère region underwent transformation at the hands of local cheesemakers, resulting in one of Switzerland's greatest culinary creations.

Gourmino's Gruyere is made by only 3 mountain dairies: Mountain Dairy Fritzenhaus (cheesemaker Michael Spycher), Vorderfultigen mountain Dairy (cheesemaker Urs Leuenberger) and Village Dairy Combremont (cheesemaker Michael Hanke).

Gourmino's Le Gruyere AOP is a 3-time award-winner for World Cheese Champion and the World Cheese Award confirms Gourmino's small but fine cheese selection and affinage of the most famous cheese in the world.

Gourmino Le Gruyere has flavors reminiscent of melted leeks, fresh corn and vanilla. Swiss Gruyere Cheese is ideal for melting and a necessary ingredient in the classic cheese fondue recipe. Gruyere Cheese is also called for as the preferred topping for French onion soup, quiche and chicken cordon bleu. This multi-purpose cheese may also be eaten as a table cheese, julienned into a Chef's Salad, or shredded over salad or pasta. Gruyere Cheese pairs well with white wines that accentuate its rich nutty flavor such as Pinot Gris or a fruity Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot.

• Aged 6 months. Made from fresh raw milk from dairy cows left to graze naturally (no silage).

• We cut and wrap this cheese by hand from a 70 lb. wheel.

What’s the best way to store my cheese?
The best way to keep cheese fresh is to store it in the vegetable crisper in your fridge. Before doing so, wrap in parchment or wax paper, then wrap loosely in plastic wrap. You can also buy our exclusive cheese storage bags, specially created to keep your cheese fresher, longer.

Unless used for cooking, we don’t recommend storing cheese in the freezer as this will alter its texture.

What is the best temperature to serve my cheese?
Remove cheese from the fridge an hour before serving, as cheese is best experienced at room temperature to enjoy the full spectrum of flavors.

How long will my cheese stay fresh in the refrigerator?
The length of time cheeses last in the fridge after opening depends largely on the type of cheese. Soft varieties tend to spoil more quickly than hard varieties. Please refer to the table below for a convenient reference:

How We Ship

FreshWave Packaging

Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality. 

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.

Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
