Lionza is a Swiss Alpine style cheese, named after the tiny village in the Swiss Alps that the Fiscalini Family called home for more than 300 years. It follows the same traditional methods today that were developed generations ago to create this one of a kind cheese.
The complex flavors and aromas range from nutty and fruity to tangy and herbal. With a natural outer rind, this cheese also has the occasional irregular eye common to Swiss Cheese and a semi-soft springy texture.
Lionza is made from raw cow’s milk, handcrafted into 28-pound wheels and aged for a minimum of 6 months.
