From gently managed fields, to gently treated cattle, at Kootenay Alpine Cheese Co. their cheese-making process begins within a few hours of milking. Their recipes and labour intensive methods are carefully modeled after the tradition of French and Italian cheese-makers. Using a cone shaped cheese vat, which is the only one of its kind in Canada, they begin their unrushed make procedure. The fresh cheese is moved to carefully created aging caves. The caves are kept at the temperature of underground mountain water, and are designed to foster the development of a unique and complex flavour. During the aging process, the cheese wheels are turned and rubbed regularly to develop a natural rind. No herbs are used to hide its flavour and no preservatives simplify its aging process. When finished, the sweet subtle flavours of the pasture grass and clovers, the health of the soil, and the fresh Kootenay mountain air can be detected in this flavourful, complex, handcrafted mountain cheese.
