Founded by Errico Auricchio, BelGioioso Cheese is a cheesemaking operation based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Errico comes from a family of cheese makers who have been producing Provolone in Italy for over a century. In 1979, he moved his family to the United States and opened his own Italian cheese company.
Over the last thirty years, BelGioioso has grown to include seven manufacturing facilities in Northeastern Wisconsin. Using the milk of Wisconsin dairy farmers, the company produces over 25 types of cheese. However, each facility produces only a select few of these cheeses, thereby ensuring high quality and consistency. This has resulted in multiple awards, including several United States, World and American Cheese Society Awards.
CreamyGorg is BelGoioso’s creative blend of two distinct styles of Gorgonzola from Italy; Dolce Latte and Malghese. It is a pasteurized cow’s milk cheese with dark blue to green veining throughout the wheel, which is made using a traditional recipe. It is aged for 90 days, which ensures that the cheese is dense enough to maintain its shape, but with a rich and moist texture. The flavor of CreamyGorg is earthy with tangy veins of blue.
It is always great to pair this cheese with a dry Rose or a Brut Sparkling Wine with just a touch of sweetness. CreamyGorg works particularly well when used in sauces or crumbled over steaks.
