St. Pete's Select is named after the type of sandstone, St. Peter Sandstone, that forms the caves of Faribault. St. Pete's Select is Faribault's signature super premium American blue cheese. This gourmet cheese is only in limited quantities, wheels of St. Pete’s are hand selected during each of the four grading steps, and then cave aged a minimum of 100 days.
The flavor profile of St. Pete's has been described as complex, complicated yet delightfully intimate - in other words a cheese that is worth experiencing. A creamy mouth feel and a pronounced piquant sharpness are the hallmark characteristics of this classic American blue.
St. Pete's Select was awarded Best of Class at the 2013 US Championship Cheese Contest.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces.
