Academy of Cheese is excited to host David Gremmels, President of Rogue Creamery in Oregon to hear the secrets behind creating the World Cheese Awards Supreme Champion cheese Rogue River Blue and discover his other cheeses all made using traditional cheese-making techniques. David Gremmels, president of Rogue Creamery, heads a growing operation in rural southern Oregon that makes the “best cheese in the world”—and he has the award to prove it. In 2019, his signature Rogue River Blue was named the annual winner at the World Cheese Awards in Bergamo, Italy. This prestigious award was a crowning moment in a long line of previous regional and national awards for his specialty blue cheeses that are handmade using organic, grass-based milk.

Gremmels bought the creamery with a partner in 2002, becoming its sole owner in 2017. From the beginning, his mission has been to honor traditional cheese-making processes and to do so while promoting sustainability and community connections. As a result, Rogue Creamery was a trailblazer as Oregon’s first social-public benefit company, named one of the state’s Best Green Workplaces, and certified organic by Oregon Tilth.

Past leadership roles include president and chairman of the American Cheese Society, member of the Governor’s Sustainability Board of Oregon, and founder of the Oregon Cheese Guild and Oregon Cheese Festival. In 2019, Gremmels partnered with France-based Savencia Fromage and Dairy to expand the creamery’s brand into new marketplaces worldwide.
