Fontina Val D’Aosta DOP is the original & authentic “Fontina” ! This phenomenal raw cow’s milk cheese has been produced since the 12th Century in the Val D’Aosta Region, which borders France & Switzerland. The cows that produce the milk for Fontina Val d'Aosta graze on Alpine pasture of wildflowers and native herbs, which contribute to its unique taste. Fontina gets more interesting & complex with age! This cheese pairs well with a burly red wine…try a Barolo from Piemonte ! It is excellent for eating or cooking & is the quintessential cheese used for Fondue/Fonduta. Grab a hearty, rustic piece of bread & begin dipping!
