A Passion for Crafting the World’s Finest Cheeses

THE MARK OF FINE CHEESE

ROUGETTE Bon·fire Cheeses are unique grilling cheeses made using traditional methods by Käserei Champignon, a cheese producer in Bavaria, Germany. We have been producing our cheese with a lot of love and purely natural ingredients since 1908.  

Genuine Craftsmanship With Tradition

Käserei Champignon is a family-owned company that has made the finest specialty cheeses for over 100 years. The first cheese produced was a Camembert which had an earthy, mushroomy flavor, which became the inspiration for the Champignon name. Over the years, more cheeses were crafted and perfected and the company expanded production to include soft-ripened cheeses, washed-rind cheeses, blue cheeses, and, recently, ROUGETTE Bon·fire Grilling Cheeses.

Expertise With Commitment

Today, we bring our specialty cheeses to people around the world, yet we are still family-owned and deeply rooted in the Allgäu region in southern Germany. We maintain production in Bavaria and continue to source our milk from the local farms that have been supplying Käserei Champignon for generations. 

Traditional Craftsmanship Inspired by Innovation

HOW SOMETHING GREAT BECOMES MORE AND MORE PERFECT

Our cheeses are crafted by master cheese makers trained in technical expertise and the artistry of affinage to create cheeses of exceptional quality and taste. Our recipes have been handed down and perfected over our company´s hundred-year history of cheese making. A Käserei Champignon cheese is a mark of high quality, innovation, and craftsmanship.
