Brunet is a regular birthday party. Cakey at its core with an ice cream-smooth creamline and a rind that‘s just icing on the cake. Caseifocio dell’Alta Langa—a cheesemaking company names after an ancient breed of goat—crafts each round from pasteurized goat’s milk in Piedmont, Italy. We receive each round in a squat cupcake wrapper and immediately transfer to our cool, humid subterranean caves. After weeks underground, Brunet emerges as a delicate gift to cheeselovers. Its paste retains a goaty tang while our aging caves impart complex flavors of sweet straw and seeded bread loaves. Add some Prosecco or Moscato d’Asti to have your cheese, and eat it, too.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Tempranillo

    Medium-bodied with flavors of cherry, as well as some cranberry which lends bright acidity. Cinnamon and clove spices, and earthy, leathery flavors balance things out.
    Pair with: Sheep’s milk cheese like Malvarosa or Pyrenees Brebis, flavored cheese (truffles, herbs, or spices), and younger leaf-wrapped cheeses with some funk – think Robiola Foglie de Fico.

  • Pinot Grigio

    A lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.
    Pair with: Creamy goat or mixed milk cheese with a crisp acidic element. La Tur or Brunet are great alongside the fruit-tart flavors of the wine.
