Top cheese in the U.S. is their Baby Swiss Wheel, made of 100% natural ingredients. A team of 60 national judges considered each entry’s flavor, body and texture, salt, color, finish and appearance, and Team Guggisberg Doughty Valley scored 98.543 out of 100.
Founded by Alfred Guggisberg in the 1950s and one of the most famous cheese factories in the U.S., Guggisberg is only the third to win this award twice. (Land O'Lakes and Sartori are the others.) Richard Guggisberg, president, said when accepting the award that he was proud of carrying on his father's tradition and wishes he could have been here to see this win.
