Winzer Classic is an unpasteurized cow milk cheese from Switzerland. Exclusive to the cheese company, Emmi, it is produced in the artisanal way from only five dairies in Switzerland. During the maturation process, Winzer Classic is washed in red wine from the Valais region of Switzerland. This cheese was formally called Vignerons, commonly known as "winemaker's cheese". Aged for about 5 months, this cheese develops a rich and nutty flavor with a dense yet semi-soft texture. This cheese closely resembles the flavor profiles of the other mountain cheeses produced in Switzerland, such as Appenzeller and Gruyere.
