Information about this style of cheese
Beaufort is a firm, raw cow's milk cheese associated with the gruyère family. An Alpine cheese, it is produced in Beaufortain, Tarentaise valley and Maurienne, which are located in the Savoie region of the French Alps.
There are three varieties of Beaufort:
- Beaufort d'été (or summer Beaufort)
- Beaufort d'alpage (made in chalets in the Alps on high pastures)
- Beaufort d'hiver (winter Beaufort)
Beaufort was first certified as an appellation d'origine contrôlée in 1968
Beaufort is produced in the Beaufortain, Tarentaise and Maurienne valleys, as well as parts of the Val d'Arly valley, all located on 450,000 hectares of the Savoie region.
The cheese is prepared using 11 liters (2.9 U.S. gal) of milk for every 1 kg (2.2 lb) of cheese desired. The milk used in one variety comes from the Tarine or Abondance cows that graze in the Alps.
