Sartori took home three gold medals at this year’s International Cheese Awards in Nantwich, Cheshire in the UK.
Among those awards, Sartori’s Cognac BellaVitano® was named “Best USA Cheese,” while SarVecchio® Parmesan won the “Cheese with Health Benefits” category and Merlot BellaVitano took gold in the “Cheese, Sweet Additives” category.
Sartori has been on a winning streak as of late, having recently received four first place awards at the Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest. The artisan cheese company has taken over 240 awards from various national and international competitions. Cognac BellaVitano, in particular, received over 5 awards since 2010, including another “Best USA Cheese” award and being named “third best cheese in the world” at the 2011 World Cheese Awards, according to a press release.
Chad Vincent, Chief Marketing Officer at Sartori, said that the company was honored to win the “Best USA Cheese” title again.
“We’re in a fortunate position to have teamed up with these dairy farmers who have been with Sartori for many generations, most of which are family owned and operated, just like us,” said Vincent. “Each day, our team members and extended family such as our patron farmers, take pride in their hard work. These awards serve as a testament to that.”
In addition, Sartori received a silver medal for its Balsamic BellaVitano and a bronze medal for its Citrus Ginger BellaVitano.
Congratulations on this latest win, Sartori!
