Invierno

Made by Vermont Shepherd

Putney, VT

Inspired by the famous mountain cheeses of the Pyrenees, Vermont Shepherd’s creations are among the oldest and most well known of this country’s sheep and mixed-milk cheeses. Made in small 10 to 30 wheel batches, each cheese reflects the terroir of the carefully tended landscape. Invierno, or “winter,” is made only in the winter months from a blend of rich raw sheep & cow milk. The resulting cheese is soft to semi-hard with a natural rind, and is aged for 4-5 months in a special cave built on the farm. Invierno is a versatile cheese with a rich butter and mushroom flavor. It melts well and is delicious with cider, beer and rich savory red wines.
