Press release: Sartori is proud to announce today that Sartori Limited Edition Cognac BellaVitano was named “Best USA Cheese,” received a Super Gold Medal, and finished Third In The World overall in a stiff 2011 competition of over 2,500 entries at the World Cheese Awards in Birmingham, UK. Sartori also took home an additional 5 gold medals and a bronze. The World Cheese Awards is one of the most prestigious cheese competitions, featuring entries from over 30 countries.
Cognac BellaVitano, brainchild of Sartori Master Cheesemakers, is a unique delicacy that is made in extremely limited quantities each year. It features the sweet, fruity, and tangy base flavors of BellaVitano Gold, paired with the delectable oaky, smoky and vanilla caramel flavors that emanate from soaking the cheese in a premium cognac.
The 2011 holiday release of Cognac BellaVitano is underway. Produced in 20 pound wheels, Cognac BellaVitano will be sold through high end specialty cheese retailers. A small quantity will also be available for purchase on the company’s website at www.sartoricheese.com.
In support of local families in need during the holiday season, Sartori is currently auctioning 2 full 20 pound Cognac wheels on eBay, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to area food banks.
