Pre Order Winnimere Now!
Jasper Hill only makes Winnimere when the cows are in the barn and eating dry hay – that usually means Winnimere starts being made in early November and released the following January. With all of the rain in Vermont this year though, the fields have been too muddy and the cows went into the barn a couple months earlier than usual. As a result, Jasper Hill is making Winnimere earlier and we’ll see a rare Q4 release!
Winnimere is a take on Jura Mountain classics like Vacherin Mont d’Or or Försterkäse. In keeping with tradition, this decadent cheese is made only during winter months when Jasper Hill’s Ayrshire cows are giving rich, hay-fed raw milk. Young cheeses are wrapped in strips of spruce cambium, the tree’s flexible inner bark layer, harvested from Jasper Hill’s woodlands. During aging, the cheese is washed in a cultured salt brine to help even rind development. At 60 days, this cheese is spoonably soft and tastes of bacon, sweet cream, and spruce.
