Rumiano Cheese Receives Honor at World Championship Cheese Contest
Rumiano’s “Peppercorn Dry-Jack” receives 4th place honors at the World Championship Cheese Contest in Wisconsin.
The Rumiano Cheese Company's artisan Dry Monterey Jack with Peppercorns has just received fourth place in the World Championship Cheese Contest earlier today with a score of 97.85. It placed fourth only missing third place by .05 points in the "Flavored Hard Cheese" category. This cheese has been one of the company's most notable and highly praised cheese through the decades, as the first generation Rumiano's were said to have developed the aged wheel for markets in the early years of the 20th century.
This isn't the first time Rumiano Cheese Co. has received prizes or mentions in competitions; the last two years, Rumiano Cheese Co. has collected over eight gold medals and first place awards from the California State Fair, American Cheese Society Competition and Los Angeles International Dairy Competition. This is the second time this cheese has climbed to a fourth place ranking in the World Championship Cheese Contest as well.
