This cheese conveys the unmistakable flavor of a warm spring day in the forest. Fine citrus notes gently shimmer through the flavor of the wild garlic and give it a remarkable, subtle, aromatic note.

During a walk in the forest, Affineur Walo, always on the search for something new, came to the idea that the wild garlic, with its slightly acidic note, would harmonise well with cheese. Through freezing, it was possible to conserve the fresh wild garlic, and he commissioned a small village cheese factory near St. Gallen, which exclusively works with natural raw milk, to experiment with it. The wild garlic should be dominant but not intrusive. The result enchants everyone with its lightness and freshness.

Who is Affineur Walo?

"I was working for a big chemical group when Swiss Government decided to dissolve the Swiss cheese union and our company was likely to disappear. This was the moment I decided to continue to tell the story of the Swiss cheese.
I love these stories cheese is telling you by smelling and tasting them. But what if the cheese does not tell you a story anymore. This happens when the industry is treating the milk, the milk is pasteurized, microfiltered and going through a Baktifuge separator until she is completely neutral and sterile, and the cheese loses his story. I want that our kids will still have the possibility to listen to the cheese story and that is why I fight every day for the traditional cheese making.
As Affineur Walo I am now leading the business in the 5th Generation and we have won a great deal of awards. In addition to that we have been honoured by the historical Museum in Bern together with big names as Tobler (Toblerone), Bloch (Ragusa). I guess I am the first Affineur having a place in the museum.
More than 150 years of family-expertise in cheese-production: Affineur Walo has received more awards than Switzerland has mountains.
Life is too short to eat bad cheese."
