Val Chisone Wine Marc Goat’s Cheese

Product

Val Chisone is an area of the Piedmont valleys where the ancient Provençal dialects are still spoken.  The cheeses are ripened in the marc of  a rare local Doux d’Henry, apparently so called because it was a favourite of Henry IV of France.  Its characteristics of a blue goat’s cheese make it stand out from other cheeses ripened in wine marc.
