Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Alpine-Style can be used in this recipe.


  1. Combine the Grand Cru®, Little Mountain, Pleasant Ridge Reserve, 1 cup wine and lemon juice in a large bowl. Let stand at room temperature for at least 2 hours, or cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Place salt in large saucepan. Starting in the salt, rub the cut sides of garlic on pan. Discard garlic. Add the remaining wine; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low. Gradually whisk in cheese mixture until melted and smooth. Season with nutmeg and pepper to taste.
  3. Transfer to a fondue pot. Heat on low to keep warm. Serve with dippers.

Recipe Tips

  • Soaking the cheese, preferably overnight, in wine prior to melting not only adds flavor but it helps to ensure a smooth fondue.
  • Fromagination suggests using sauvignon blanc wine in this recipe.
  • Roth Reserve Grand Cru® or Roth Surchoix Grand Cru® could be substituted for the Roth Original Grand Cru® cheese.

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Award-winning, alpine-style cheeses are featured in this fondue. Alpine cheese means "originated in the Alps" or the European mountain range. It's quality milk, gathered at only certain times of the year, crafted in small batches, and the innovative cheesemaking techniques that make these cheeses so special.
