History

  • Gorgonzola orginates from northern Italy where it's been made since A.D. 879.  Gorgonzola cheese got its name from the town located in the Po Valley near Milan. 
  • Today, Wisconsin produces an Itlian-style Gorgonzola cheese that ripens to a soft, creamy texture and its flavor is more earthy.
