Roelli Cheese Haus
Roelli Cheese Haus factory sits directly on the corner of highways 11 & 23 just 6 miles East of Shullsburg, WI.
It was re-opened in 2006 by the Roelli Family after its original closed due to the economy in 1991. Fourth generation cheese maker Chris Roelli designed this artisan factory 11 times smaller than its original. He is currently making approximately 135,000 lbs. of cheese per year.
Chris is known for his award winning original recipe cheddar blue cheeses Dunbarton Blue and Red Rock. He also won the coveted “Best of Show” honors at the 2016 American Cheese Society annual competition with his alpine style cheese named Little Mountain. He also makes fresh cheddar curds weekly, cellar aged cheddars, bandaged cheddar, Farmhouse Colby-style, Monterey Jack, Goudse Kaas, Havarti, and Cheshire inspired cheese.
There is a viewing area at the front of the factory that guests can see the entire work space of the cheese maker. Cheese making at Roelli’s is currently in the mornings, Monday through Friday.
Because space is limited, visits are offered during cheese making by appointment. To watch cheese being made, please call 608-965-3625.
