Find out more about Bleu d´Auvergne
A cheese of character, Bleu d'Auvergne was born in the mid-19th century from the passion of an Auvergne farmer who had the idea of inoculating curdled milk with rye bread mold. Thus were born the first blues of Auvergne. Over time, this generous-tasting marbling has built a solid reputation that has continued to grow to this day.
Made mainly in the south of Puy-de-Dôme and in the north of Cantal, this blue is rich in its terroir with volcanic soil and immense grasslands whose abundant and diverse flora allows the cows that feed on it to produce a high quality milk.
