CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — In an homage to fromage, Sunday has been dubbed "Blue Cheese Day," commemorating a historic win for Oregon and the U.S. by Rogue Creamery.

Last year, Rogue Creamery's Rogue River Blue cheese was named "World’s Best Cheese" in Bergamo, Italy — the first time that an American-made cheese has won the title.

In honor of that win, Governor Kate Brown issued a proclamation naming October 18 "Blue Cheese Day."

Rogue Creamery plans to celebrate its award-winning cheese and this first annual holiday with a reading of the proclamation by President of Rogue Creamery, David Gremmels, as well as a special giveaway on social media platforms for cheese lovers.

"It will be a day of remembrance and appreciation of the art of Oregon cheese," a spokesperson said in a statement.

GIVEAWAY ALERT! “Although cheese had just four basic ingredients—milk, rennet, starter culture, and salt—it had an infinite galaxy of potential outcomes.” American Cheese by Joe Berkowitz explores every corner of the cheese world in the U.S., and Rogue Creamery is delighted to be mentioned in it. In honor of the book’s launch, we are going to be holding a GIVEAWAY: one lucky winner will be the owner of a copy of the book and a $50 gift certificate to Rogue Creamery. RULES: 1. Make sure you are following us on Instagram. 2. Comment on this post, tag a friend and tell us what your favorite Rogue Creamery cheese is. 3. Check back on Friday (10/16) to see if you won! Good luck! If you don’t end up winning, we will have the book available for sale on our website, in the Cheese Shop, and at the Farm Stand!
