May we introduce? The pearls of the Swiss Alps.

The Perles des Alpes suisses are very special cheeses in our range in that they represent something quite traditional - classic Swiss cheese craftsmanship in its sophisticated perfection handed down through the generations. The Perles des Alpes suisses are available in three degrees of ripeness, each of which offers its own distinctive flavour experience.

Cows from really good and animal-friendly husbandry and from small farms as milk suppliers for the cheese of Güntensperger Käse AG

Not exactly what we're talking about here - but the best raw material producer for exactly that

We are very keen to experiment at Güntensperger. We invent innovative products such as Cheese Balls or Swiss Cowers, we carefully combine our cheeses with truffles, wild garlic or flower blossoms, we come up with new fondues (with beer) or Cheese Bangers for the barbecue. But all of this is still based on tried-and-tested cheese craftsmanship. In the following, we present three cheeses that demonstrate exactly that - proven, traditional and carefully cultivated cheese craftsmanship. Allow us to introduce the Perles des Alpes suisses.
