Rogue Creamery's cheesemaking roots go all the way back to the 1930s when Tom Vella (father to renown cheesemaker Ig Vella) decided to open a Southern Oregon creamery in the middle of the depression. Today, Rogue Creamery is run by David Gremmels and Cary Bryant, who continue to uphold the practices and principles of artisan cheesemaking as set out by the Vellas.
Echo Mountain is a seasonal cheese. Made using a blend of raw cow and goat milk, it is dense, creamy and complex. The flavor of goat milk is apparent but not overwhelming. With bold earthy flavors it is rich and lively on the pallet.
Made with a blend of cow and goat milk.
