San Joaquin Gold is an original cheese recipe created by and made only at Fiscalini Farmstead. Like the European tradition of naming unique foods after the location where they were first produced, we named this cheese after the valley where it is made. San Joaquin Gold is an Italian-style cheese with a natural thin rind and a tawny buttery color. Mildly sweet and mellow when young, it develops a darker golden hue and deeper nuttier flavor over time. San Joaquin Gold is made from raw cow’s milk, handcrafted into 30-pound wheels and aged for a minimum of 12 months.
