Rogue River Blue

This hand crafted raw cow’s milk blue veined cheese develops a beautiful natural rind as a result of hand turning and tending the cheese several times a week.

The wheels are aged for up to a year in our special rooms which were constructed to simulate the ancient caves in Roquefort, France. This aging process imparts into the cheese naturally occurring molds that we consider to be our signature Rogue River Valley Terroir.

The flavors of our terroir include hints of sweet woodsy pine, wild ripened berries, hazelnuts, morels and pears. To preserve this cheese we hand wrap each wheel in grape leaves harvested from Carpenter Hill Vineyards in the Rogue River Valley. These leaves have been macerated in Clear Creek’s Pear Brandy and tied with raffia. The grape leaves add additional complexity to the terroir driven flavors of the cheese and preserve its moist creamy texture.
