Apéro Box – December 2021


Let’s celebrate 2021 with the “Best Of” artisanal cheeses and wine that we discovered on our travels across Switzerland.  With our Apéro Box, we present a Merlot Bianco from Ticino and we take you to 2 cheese dairies in 2 different cantons – St-Gallen and Zug!

We hope you enjoy this Box with your friends and family this holiday season.

Wishing you safe and joyous celebrations!

Warmest wishes,

Lhney and Johana – The Cheese Ladies


“Best Of” Apéro Box for December 2021

Försterkäse Bio

Käserei Stofel

Canton: St-Gallen

Försterkäse Bio

Characteristics :  A soft cheese

Type of milk :  Cow, thermized

Tasting Notes :  Försterkäse Bio has a wooden rind wrapped around its crust which adds a smoky, woody flavor that is almost bacon-like.

Serving suggestion :  This smoky cheese goes well with a wine that is not too tannic, such as a Pinot Noir.

Walchwiler Tanne-Chäs

Chäs Hütte Rust

Canton: Zug

Walchwiler Tanne-Chäs

Characteristics :  A semi-hard cheese, aged 6 months

Type of milk :  Cow, thermized

Tasting Notes :  This cheese is unique because its rind is encrusted with wood chips from a pine tree, which gives it its distinctive woody aroma and taste.  Its texture is soft, smooth, and creamy, which balances the light pine flavor.

Serving suggestion :  The beautiful aroma and taste is perfect for the holiday season! This woody cheese is best served with a slightly sweet wine to lift up its earthiness.

Terre Alte Bianco Di Merlot 2020


Canton: Ticino

Terre Alte Bianco Di Merlot 2020

Grapes :  Merlot

Origin :  Ticino DOC Bianco di Merlot

Vintage :  2020

Wine Style :  Dry white wine, with a pale straw yellow color. Fruity finesse mingling of lime, green apple, white peach, William’s pear, and white flowers notes. It has a fresh acidity and a good length with a mineral finish.

Serving suggestion :  Fresh and fruity, but also creamy with a mineral finish. Ideal for an aperitif!  We paired this wine with the Walchwiler Tanne-Chäs with its pine-scented aroma and the Försterkäse Bio which is wrapped in wood and imparts a smokey flavor. A perfect pairing for a festive winter holiday apéro!

Box :  Apéro
