It’s the Autumnal Equinox, you know what that means…..Rogue River Blue

Fall is on its way, and with it comes the return of Rogue Creamery’s Organic Rogue River Blue.  Released every year for the Autumnal Equinox, it has been one of the cheese world’s favorite traditions for 17 years running.  In that time, it has developed a base of passionately devoted fans and won numerous awards, including 2 “Best in Show” accolades from the American Cheese Society.

What makes this cheese so sought after?  Everyone has a different answer, but there’s no shortage of possibilities: Rogue’s high quality organic Swiss and Holstein milk, their emphasis on sustainable production, or maybe the pear brandy-soaked grape leaves (all local sourced by Rogue, of course) that wrap the cheese and give it a heady sweetness to counterpoint the cheese’s salty, pungent flavors.
