Valbreso® cheese started with an ingenious idea:
What if the famously rich, high quality milk of the Lacaune sheep was used to make a feta-like cheese following traditional methods? The resulting pleasantly rich and creamy taste has made Valbreso® cheese a favorite of cheese lovers everywhere.
Valbreso® cheese comes from the rugged plateaus surrounding the Mediterranean Sea in southern France. Within this spectacular setting of wild mountain ranges and rivers, Valbreso® cheese is crafted following traditional methods and matured in brine, which gives it a characteristic flavor and texture.
The production of Valbreso® cheese begins with 100% sheep’s milk from the very unique Lacaune sheep that graze on the lush plateaus surrounding Roquefort-sur-Soulzon. The rich, high quality milk of these prolific dairy ewes is used in the making of Roquefort and Valbreso® cheese, and provides both with their distinctive taste and superior richness.
Valbreso® cheese offers a unique creaminess with no bitterness or aftertaste and a rich tangy yet delicate taste with a very subtle saltiness. Cheese lovers appreciate its combination of a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture with a firm consistency.
The delicious melt-in-your-mouth taste of Valbreso® cheese is also available in a light version. Valbreso® Light has 55% less fat and 35% fewer calories than the original, but still tastes great.
