Smelly Cheese Co
Vully Rouge is made at a small dairy which is located by the lake of Morat in the canton of Fribourg. There, Schäfer Fromagerie, first made this cheese in 1994. At the end of production, the cheese is soaked in brine for 24 hours before being regularly washed with brine and Pinot Noir which is grown on the slopes of Mont Vully. This continues several times a week while being matured in the cellar for about 10 weeks. The rind is a lovely dark orange encasing an ivory to yellow coloured interior. It has a delicate texture and slightly piquant flavour.
In 1964, Hubert Mons and his wife decided to sell cheese on the markets in and around Roanne. In 1983, Hervé, the eldest son, set up the first shopfront in the Roanne city center. Other shops followed along with the maturing cellars in Saint-Haon-le-Châtel. In the 90s, his brother Laurent joined him. A few years ago, the company became international and is now trading all over the world.
