Alpine Cheese Dairy Morteratsch

The Alpschaukäserei (cheese factory), with its stunning views of the Bernina Massif, is situated not far from the Morteratsch Glacier. Watch the cheesemaker at work as you sample his handiwork with your brunch or Zvieri (afternoon snack). The Sennerei Pontresina cheese dairy's Glacier Fondue counts as an insider's tip. Purchase their products in summer or winter.

Fifty-five years after the last cheese left the Alpine peak of Nova, the Alpine Dairy in Pontresina is producing once again cheese in the traditional way on this idyllic mountain.

Secrets from the stove

This cheese is so creamy, that one eats it with a spoon: Vacherin Mont d'Or is a cheese with a long tradition, carefully prepared by specialists in Vallée de Joux. One of the cheese specialists is Jean-Michel Rochat, who is pleased to take interested groups on a tour of his cheese-making facility, Le Pelerin, as well as on a tour of the in-house museum. As a grand finale he reveals the famous recipe for making Vacherin Mont d’Or au four cheese (au four means from the oven) - the most popular Swiss dessert cheese.
