Already enticing shoppers with its robust lineup of quality cheeses, cheesemaker Rogue Creamery is known for its prowess in the cheese space. Bolstering this portfolio even further, the supplier has announced a limited release of one of its most distinctive cheeses: Bluehorn Blue.
“Bluehorn Blue is a favorite of our team and customers. It’s rich, buttery, creamy—an opulent and luxurious style of blue with deep, nuanced flavors and a beautiful purple hue to the rind. By soaking the wheels in red wine, we highlight the unique fruity and berry flavors that are found naturally in our classic blue cheese recipe,” said Rogue Creamery Cheese Emissary Marguerite Merritt. “Our cheeses are best in class, and when we were searching for a wine to complement that superior level of quality, we immediately thought of Troon Vineyard. Like Rogue, Troon is a classic, local Southern Oregon brand that embodies the best that our agricultural region has to offer. What’s more, they’re pioneering sustainability practices and initiatives, which aligns perfectly with our own company’s values.”
Now available for purchase through Rogue Creamery’s website and in a number of wholesale distributors nationwide, Bluehorn Blue is made with Certified Organic pasteurized cows milk and aged about six months.
After an extended period of time in the company’s aging caves, each wheel of Bluehorn is soaked in red wine made from organic, biodynamic Syrah grapes grown in Southern Oregon at award-winning Troon Vineyard, a press release explained.
“When Rogue Creamery sought to use grape leaves from our biodynamic organic vineyard for their World Champion Rogue River Blue, we knew the leaves would have to come from the expressive Syrah vines in block 14,” said Craig Camp, General Manager of Troon Vineyard. “We are now honored that Rogue Creamery has also selected our Syrah wine from this same vineyard to use in their Bluehorn Blue. To have our leaves and wines used in these world-class cheeses is a unique marriage of exceptional wine growing and cheesemaking.”
Showcasing the premium quality of the product, Bluehorn Blue was honored with a Super Gold medal at the 2022 World Cheese Awards, placing among the top 96 cheeses in the world.
