Pleasant Ridge Reserve has received numerous prestigious awards. Most Recently Pleasant Ridge Reserve was awarded Best of Show at the 2005 American Cheese Society conference, an accolade it won for the second time, having been awarded Best of Show in 2001 as well.

Pleasant Ridge Reserve is an original cheese inspired by farmstead cheeses from the alpine provinces of southeastern France. The aging techniques they use were originally developed in the Middle Ages when cheeses similar to Pleasant Ridge Reserve were aged in limestone caves and washed frequently with a brine solution. Washing the rind keeps it free of unwanted microbes and produces a variety of pleasing flavors. Because of the time-consuming hand work involved, this practice is rarely used today.
After about four months in the aging room, Pleasant Ridge Reserve is ready to please your palate. It will continue to change and develop variations in its flavor as it ages further.
