Cheese dairies Vacherin Mont-d'Or AOP

Would you like to watch the production of Vacherin Mont-d’Or AOP, and see how the cheese makers attach a belt of pine bark around freshly made cheese? The cheese dairies of the Vallée de Joux that produce Vacherin Mont-d’Or AOP, and the aging cellars as well, are happy to welcome interested visitors during the production period from late September to April.

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.

"Pavés" from Geneva

A speciality created in the 1930s by the chocolate makers of Geneva: little cubes of chocolate, dusted with the finest cocoa powder, that melt in the mouth. Pavés are just one of the many delicious chocolate specialities from Geneva, because the city is home to many long-established chocolate making companies (Auer, Arn, Stettler, Zeller etc.). Available from specialist stores.

Cheese making in a beautifully panoramic spot

The Fluonalp is one of the loveliest of the Giswil Alps and the cows that graze here enjoy not only magnificent views, but a copious supply of the most delicious herbs. No wonder the cheese made from their milk is so remarkable. Nor is the recipe a secret. Anyone who wants to can visit the dairy and make their own cheese. What’s more, they can pick it up again a year later (the cheeses weigh between 11 and 13 kg), by which time it will have matured to perfection.

On the Fluonalp, one of the loveliest Giswil Alps, cows not only have sweeping views but the pick of delicious herbs.
