The Cheese Grotto has been engineered and handmade in the USA with your specialty cheese needs in mind. It's the invention of Jessica Sennett who has specialized in cheese making and cheese retail for 11 years. She has worked at many acclaimed cheese shops including Cowgirl Creamery, Formaggio Kitchen and Bedford Cheese Shop in addition to apprenticing in France and Washington. She makes her own cheese and is also well-versed in tasting, educating, and cooking with cheese. The grotto ships free anywhere within the United States.

An age-old science of preserving cheese

“This century-old device is the right and only way to keep and store cheese.”

- Steve Jenkins, world-renowned cheese specialist

Product Specifications

Long description

Birch wood has been traditionally used in cheese preservation for hundreds of years. Its bark has been wrapped as a belt around soft cheeses for even ripening and added woodsy flavor, and has been made into barrels for the aging of Greek Feta. It’s also been used during the smoking of Idiazabal cheese. Most importantly, birch has been used as shelves for aging in caves. Its tight surface is slower to absorb and release moisture, making it excellent for long-term storage. The finished birch featured in this model is sustainably made, and non-toxic. The finish on the birch makes it mold and stain resistant, both in the interior and exterior.

The Grotto Fresco has a smaller footprint of 7 inches by 9 inches with a height of 8 inches, making it the perfect size for the metropolitan cheese lover with a smaller refrigerator who loves entertaining on the weekends. Shelving heights accommodate just about any cheese.

It features a bio-based, non-toxic, anti-microbial floor made of linseed oil which helps naturally regulate any mold growth and the genuine leather tab makes for an easy grip on the sliding door.

The back panel is breathable, making for a perfect climate for simple, long-term storage of wedges and wheels of cheese in the refrigerator. For more advanced preservation for the true connoisseur, check out the Grotto Classico.

Both make for an excellent gift in combination with the Introductory Cheese Package.
