Sternenberger Edelwyss is made by Urs Preisig, a second generation cheesemaker who took over from his father at K√§serei Preisig a few years ago. The cheesemaking facility is located in Sternenberg in the mountainous canton (region) of Zurich, Swtizerland. Sternenberg, which means “Star Mountain” sits at an elevation of 900m (2700 ft) above sea level and the local community is small at just over 300 inhabitants. There, Preisig works with two local dairy herds, buying in their milk to make a variety of cheeses. Named after the rare, white, Alpine wildflower, Edelwyss is a small cheese formed in an oval shape with a bloomy white rind. The interior paste is soft-semi soft and pale yellow in color.
