The Hornbacher cheese is produced by the passionate Gourmino master cheesemaker Michael Spycher at his cheese dairy Fritzenhaus in Wasen. In addition to the world champion cheese “Le Gruyère”, Michu (how Michael’s called by his friends) produces this specialty already for quite a while. Up until now, he and his wife Monika sold this cheese just in their own little cheese store. The nutrient-rich milk comes from the surrounding hills and gives the cheese a very special flavor profile. This is the basis for the high quality of Michu’s cheeses. This mountain cheese has been cared for with love and ripens in his cellars to develop the unique rind and taste.
