Cheese Grotto Classico
The Classico is the original and largest cheese grotto capable of storing 8-10 pounds of cheese in the most ideal climate. This gorgeous bamboo box, with hinged door, uses materials selected for their resilience and durability to satisfy even the most discriminating cheese enthusiast or connoisseur
All cheese grottos can be kept in the refrigerator for long-term storage or on the countertop (like the Europeans do) for short term storage. Everything, from the design to materials used, is selected to maintain cheese integrity and flavor; providing proper ventilation, temperature control, humidity, and light exposure can keep cheese fresh and ready to eat for weeks.
Beyond functionality, The Classico truly looks charmingly functional on your countertop or on a shelf in your refrigerator and will start many conversations that all end the same way...sharing cheese with people you love.
