THE CASTELLO STORY
Since 1893 Castello® has brought a balance of innovation and tradition to the art of cheese making. Castello® cheeses cover a wide range of traditional regional recipes and our own unique crafted cheeses, always made with natural ingredients and great attention to detail.
The first Castello cheese was Castello White, designed to have a thin, delicate rind and a subtle creamy flavor by our master cheesemaker Rasmus Tholstrup. Since then the company has created many more new cheeses and grown, acquiring more dairies and exporting to more countries.
We pride ourselves on the continuous passion for discovery and cheesemaking heritage shown by Rasmus Tholstrup and all our other master cheesemakers to this day. We've never been content to just make the standard cheeses, but instead have creatively combined ingredients and techniques from all over the world, giving each cheese a unique flavor and texture.
We use the expertise of artisan cheesemakers and traditional production methods to develop our range of cheeses. Each cheese is made at a single dairy, which specializes in the production of that particular cheese.
Castello is a heritage and tradition of creative cheesemaking. Innovative new cheeses, dozens of varieties, intriguing flavors & unusual shapes - all that tell their own unique story.
