The uniquely spicy cheese from Appenzellerland.

Appenzeller ® is one of Switzerland’s great gastronomic treasures. The country’s spiciest cheese has been made by hand in the same way for more than 700 years. The gentle, hilly landscape between Lake Constance and the Säntis massif with its lush, healthy, nutritious herb-filled grass is the secret of the natural raw milk from which Appenzeller ® is made. The age-old craft of making cheese by hand is as much a part of the living heritage of the Appenzellerland as the local traditions of string music and rustic painting on wood.

Three-Lake-Country

Wine regions – Like the vineyards in many other wine-growing regions, those in the Three-Lake-Country have experienced their ups and downs. The wine growing area reached the point at which the largest expanse of land was planted with vineyards in the middle of the 17th century, most likely due to the increased demand during the Thirty Years War.
