Sartori Cheese Releasing Two Limited Edition Items For December

PLYMOUTH, Wis. — Sartori Company is excited to announce the release of their most exclusive Limited Edition cheese, Cognac BellaVitano®, just in time for the holidays. Crowned "Best USA Cheese" and placing in the top-3 at the World Cheese Awards in 2011, this highly sought after cheese will be available for purchase at specialty cheese shops across the states. In conjunction with Cognac BellaVitano's return, Sartori will also be releasing 200 Limited Edition Gift Baskets, sold exclusively online at

Cognac BellaVitano, the most premium Limited Edition item, truly stands out as a cut above the rest. The cheese itself is extra-aged; it matures for at least 18 months. After the aging process, it is submerged in a premium Cognac and is only ready for sale when Sartori Master Cheesemakers believe it is just right. The end result is a unique and complex celebration of smoky, nutty, oaky flavors with toasted notes of vanilla and caramel from the Cognac.

Sartori's Limited Edition Gift Basket includes a selection of five limited edition cheeses, Cognac BellaVitano, Extra-Aged Goat, Pastorale Blend®, Peppermint BellaVitano, and Cannella BellaVitano. As an added bonus, each gift basket includes a set of 4 Sartori wine charms, a Sartori engraved cheese knife and cutting board. This exclusive basket is packaged in a Sartori screen-printed wooden crate including a certificate of authenticity signed by Sartori Master Cheesemaker Mike Matucheski.

These items are available during the month of December. Cognac BellaVitano can be purchased at specialty cheese shops across the United States as well as online at the Sartori cheese shop,, while supplies last. The Limited Edition Gift Basket will be sold exclusively online for $124.99 plus free shipping.

"We are very excited to share our hand-crafted Limited Edition products over this holiday season," says Sue Merckx, Sartori Marketing Director. "We hope they are passed around many tables and brighten the days of our customers, their families and friends."
