Wurtemberg is a small semi-cooked organic cheese produced by the Montbéliard cheese dairy in the Doubs. Where does the name Wurttemberg come from? To explain we have to take you back to the 17th century. At that time, Swiss Mennonite breeders were driven from Switzerland by the Catholics, before being welcomed, with their herds of cows (Bernese breed), into the Montbéliard region by the Duke of Wurttemberg, a Protestant. Their expertise and potential in terms of farming and breeding were rapidly recognised by the Duke of Wurttemberg, who requisitioned farmland for the benefit of these Swiss breeders. They went on to settle in Montbéliard and the surrounding area, notably on Joseph Graber’s farmland, where the current traditional mountain dairy is still located.
