Alta Langa Brunet


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. Caseificio 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. When you break past its paper thin rind, Brunet's 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.

Pour a glass of...
  • 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.

  • Sparkling Wine

    Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!

    Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.
