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.

Cheesemakers have handcrafted the Mindoro Collection since 1938, making their artisan cheese with local milk from Mindoro, Wisconsin. This creamy gorgonzola has a slightly milder flavor than blue cheese.
