Hittisau (Austrian Raw Milk Cheese)

 Hittisau is the namesake cheese from producer Sennerai Hittisau in the beautiful Bregenz Forest of Austria just over the border from Bavaria.

Silage-free raw cow milk from local farms gives this cheese a deep, slightly sweet flavor with occasional notes of hazelnuts at just over five months of age. The rind is brightly colored and the firm texture can develop a smattering of small eyes.

The Hittisau pairs well with ales, wheat beers, bold red wines, Blanc de Blanc Champagnes, as well as Rieslings, Grüner Veltliners, Muscats, and Chardonnays.
