by La Fromathèque and Gourmino. Product of Switzerland.
Vallée Brebidoux is made from 100% organic alpine sheep’s milk and matures in the cellars of La Fromathèque located in Val de Bagnes (a valley in the Entremont District in the Canton of Valais of Switzerland).
Val de Bagnes is a pure Swiss nature reserve, known for its glaciers and the Alps. The valley is also home to around 800 sheep, which in the summer months graze up to 2,800 meters above sea level. However, not all sheep are made for the sometimes very hard life in the Alps. For this reason, the two shepherds Jean-Luc and Emile chose the robust Basco-Béarnaise breed, which is unique in Switzerland.
Vallée Brebidoux is only produced during 8 months of the year due to the seasonal availability of the milk.
The cheeses are aged in La Fromathèque’s own cellar for three to eight months due to seasonal availability. Texture and sensory characteristics therefore change from mild and creamy to more aromatic and creamy.
Shortly before it is delivered to the customers, the cheeses are brought to the Gourmino cellar in Langnau.
