La Bottega di BelGioioso Artigiano® Wins Top Honors at ACS

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

BelGioioso is continuing to earn accolades for its artisan Italian cheeses. Expert judges at the 2017 American Cheese Society (ACS) Contest awarded the company with six of the Society’s prestigious awards—including two for new La Bottega di BelGioioso Artigiano® cheeses.

Gaetano Auricchio, Executive Vice President, BelGioioso“These awards from ACS are greatly appreciated by our Cheesemakers and their teams. We are committed each and every day to crafting consistently high-quality cheeses for our customers to enjoy, and this type of recognition affirms that our Cheesemaker’s dedication to their craft, as well as their expertise, continues at a very high level,” stated Gaetano Auricchio, Executive Vice President, in a company press release. “Gianni Toffolon, one of our original Master Cheesemakers who came from Italy with my father over 35 years ago wanted to create an exceptional cheese, and after a few years in development, it appears he has done just that.”

Touted as the “Cheese Oscars,” the 2017 ACS Contest drew a record number of entries. BelGioioso’s products were selected from more than 2,000 entries from the artisan cheese world.

The company also noted, in its press release, that Artigiano, recipient of two of the above awards, is a new cheese from BelGioioso, marketed under the La Bottega di BelGioioso brand. Wheels are carefully aged under the supervision of BelGioioso’s Master Cheesemakers to develop their deep nutty flavor and delicate crystalline texture. The cheeses are then soaked in an aged balsamic and cipolline onion marinade or hearty red wine blend to create two different varieties. Artigiano is also available in a Classico offering, without a marinade.
