Sartori Company, producers of award winning artisan cheese, is excited to announce its launch of Citrus Ginger BellaVitano during this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show held in San Francisco, CA.  Citrus Ginger BellaVitano will be available year-round at specialty cheese shops across the United States beginning this February.

Citrus Ginger BellaVitano is a delightful cheese that is hand rubbed with a unique and exotic blend of spices including ginger, onion, garlic, red bell pepper, and citrus.   The flavors work well with the slightly fruity, creamy, tangy notes of the BellaVitano cheese.

Like with all of Sartori’s treated cheeses, the idea is to create a balance among flavors; to allow each flavor to contribute equally.  “When our internal sensory team first tried this cheese, there was a lot of positive feedback.  Many enjoyed the punch from the ginger, the sweetness from the red bell pepper, and the citrus finish,” stated Sartori Marketing Director, Susan Merckx.  “We are very excited to introduce this cheese,” added Merckx.

Sartori Reserve Citrus Ginger BellaVitano will begin shipping to stores February 2 and may be purchased at specialty cheese shops and wherever fine cheese is sold.  Additionally, this cheese will be available for sale on the Sartori online cheese shop ( beginning January 11.

“We’ve been working on this cheese for a couple of years now and I couldn’t be more proud of the hard work and determination from our team members,” stated Jim Sartori, CEO and owner.
