This is the original Swiss cheese, world famous for its distinctive holes and singular flavor. First produced more than eight centuries ago in the canton of Bern in the valley of the Emme River, Emmentaler AOP is still made in 200-pound wheels. This endlessly popular cheese is known as the king of cheese, and plays an essential role in Swiss communities and on American tables everywhere.
