San Joaquin Gold - Fiscalini Cheese Co.

San Joaquin Gold - Fiscalini Cheese Co.


San Joaquin Gold is an American Original created by and made only at Fiscalini Cheese Company. It is an Italian style, semi-hard cheese with a natural thin rind and tawny buttery color. The flavor profile is mildly sweet and mellow when young. As it ages, it develops a nuttier flavor. San Joaquin Gold is made from raw cow's milk, hand crafted into 30 pound wheels and aged a minimum of 12 months. 


San Joaquin Gold makes a great table cheese and also has many versatile uses in the kitchen. It is firm enough to be used for grating and also smooth enough to be a great melting cheese. It is excellent in a fondue blend or as the base of a creamy sauce for gnocchi or macaroni. 


In keeping with the European tradition of naming unique foods after their point of origin, Fiscalini named San Joaquin Gold after the valley where it is made.

The Fiscalini’s immigrated from Switzerland in 1912 and settled on 160 acres in Modesto where they have farmed since. Four generations later their farm has grown to include 540 acres, a herd of 2800 dairy cows, and a farmstead cheese processing plant. Unlike the original Fiscalini land that supported a single-family home, today you will find the homes of 3 generations scattered across their property. All of their craftsman cheeses are made by hand using the milk from the cattle they raise.
