This remarkable cheese was already known in the time of the Romans. It takes about 500 litres (130 gallons) of milk to make a Beaufort of 40 - 45 kg. The cheese is made from the milk given by the mahogany-coloured Beaufort cows, called the Tarines or Tarentaises. This ancient mountain breed originally came from the Indo-Asian continent. Beaufort cheeses come in several versions, Beaufort d’été (summer Beaufort), Beaufort chalet d’alpage and Beaufort d'hiver (winter Beaufort) which is made in the mountain chalets.
Our cheese case is small and meticulously cared for. We don’t try to carry everything, but instead we scour the field for tasty and interesting cheeses that satisfy the imagination as much as they satisfy the palate. We keep an ever rotating selection of about 45 cheeses in stock so there is always something new to try, but you can count on finding your favourites too--and every one of them is delicious!
