Located Off The Pacific Coast
This particular region of Northern California is known for its animated and vibrant scenery – from the crystal clear rivers that flow freely into the crashing Pacific waves, to the massive redwood trees that watch over the grazing cows.
100 Years Of Award Winning Cheese
We are excited to unveil a new look for our award-winning Dry Monterey Jack and Peppato, two iconic California cheeses that were developed by our founders and refined over decades. We continue to hand-craft each wheel in the same cellars.
Rumiano Family Organic Cheese
Our cheese is certified by Global Culture and USDA Organic, made using pasteurized, organic Grade A milk. Our organic products are the world’s first cheeses Verified Non-GMO through the Non-GMO Project.
What does it mean to be NON-GMO?
Rumiano’s selection of organic cheeses and butter is certified Non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project (nongmoproject.org). GMOs are “genetically modified organisms.” We share the belief that everyone deserves an informed choice about whether or not to consume genetically modified organisms.
Does Rumiano Cheese make gluten-free cheese?
We do not use any gluten-based products in either of our plants so it is safe to say that all of our cheese is “gluten-free”. We do purchase shredded cheese from another company and it may contain potato starch, powdered cellulose, or corn starch. However, we suggest you consult with your doctor before consuming cheese as you may have another allergy affecting you.

Is there lactose in Rumiano cheese?
A good rule of thumb with cheese is the harder and more aged the cheese, the less lactose present. Once the enzymes are added during the cheesemaking process, it immediately begins eating the lactose in the milk creating lactic acid, which is sifted out when it becomes whey. Many of our varieties of cheese are free of lactose, however; some types like ricotta, brie, fresh mozzarella, and even American do contain lactose. We do suggest you consult a doctor or nutritionist regarding levels of lactose intolerance or dairy allergies before consuming any of the stated cheese.
