Matucheski named 2014 Grand Master Cheese Maker

Aug. 11, 2014 | 0 comments

Mike Matucheski, a cheesemaker at Sartori Company in Antigo, was named the 2014 Grand Master Cheese Maker during the Blue Ribbon Cheese & Butter Auction, held Aug. 8 at Wisconsin State Fair Park. Matucheski, a four-time winner of the coveted Grand Master Cheese Maker title, earned the honor for his Chai BellaVitano, the first place entry in the Flavored Hard Cheese class. Matucheski previously earned the title in 2012, 2010 and 2009.

Each blue-ribbon entry from the Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest sold during the event, which – through auction sales, paddle raffles and donations from Berenz Packaging of Menomonee Falls and Wisconsin Cheese Originals of Oregon – raised $28,965 for student scholarships and dairy promotions at the Wisconsin State Fair.

Leading off the auction was 20 pounds of Matucheski's award-winning Chai BellaVitano, which sold for $1,500 to Ivarson, Milwaukee.
