We not only care about what tastes like and what goes in to give it that flavour, but we also care about how the animal's well-being.
We have made sure that our suppliers grass-fed their animals and are roam free, bringing out the best flavour possible for both meat and dairy produce.
By making sure that the animals we get our dairy from being happy and healthy, we get better tasting and higher
quality of cheese in return.

Cheese and wine pairing
Are you planning on having a romantic dinner or lunch, and need to pair cheeses to your wine? Look no further. Below is a quick table of a few cheeses we provide and what wines we recommend with work beautifully. Saint Vernier - The cheese got first made in the Jura region of France. It has a creamy, smooth texture and has a slightly fruity, sherry flavour. It can get paired with Savagnin Blanc or Alsace Rieslings.
Val De Loue - Val De Loue is another French creation and has a strong, oaky flavour with a smooth texture, which can get paired with Marc du Jura wine.
Mimolette Normande - Mimolette Normande has two questionable places of origin. Some say it had originated from France, whilst others think it had come from Holland. Mimolette Normande - has a malty flavour, and it can get best served with some aged ales, cabernet sauvignon or even some French malbec. Tommes des Monts with truffle - This enticing cheese is a tradition to the French and the Swiss people.
Tommes des Monts with truffle - has a sharpness given by the truffles whilst also having a smooth blended texture that would work with some old red burgundy.
Normandy Camembert - Normandy Camembert had originated from the northern side of France and is closely related to the Brie cheese. With the camembert having a velvety texture and a strong-tasting rind, it can get served perfectly with some most white wines. Rodgis favourite white wine for pairing with this cheese is Errazuriz Estate Series Chardonnay.
Morbier matured - Rodgis Morbier originating from the Jura mountains of France has a 45 day maturity time. The maturing process leaves the cheese with a mild savoury flavour and pungent smell. The mature Morbier can get best served with both white and red wines. We at Rodgis recommend you try the Pinot noir with this semi-soft cheese.
Rodgis recommends if you’re trying to select some cheeses for your romantic dates to try our top 3 choices. We chose Abondance, Normandy Camembert, and last but not least, Beaufort Alpage.

Rodgis top 5 tips, to create a stunning cheese board
1. Plating - Rodgis finds the most aesthetic-pleasing cheese boards are either wooden, marble or slate. But you can choose whatever board you may have such as a plate, chopping board, baking tray or even on the table itself.
2. Cheese selections - We recommend choosing up to a maximum type of 2-4 cheeses. Too many and you lose the focal point, or too little, and it looks too bland. best to add cheeses of different colours.
3. Sweets - Try adding some fresh fruits and jams to the mix. Figs, apricots, apples, grapes and berries get popularly used in cheese boards. You could even try some sweet desserts like chocolate or some fresh ingredients like sliced cucumbers or carrot matchsticks.
4. Savouries - At Rodgis, we recommend adding olives, salted or raw nuts, roasted peppers, or even pickles or gherkins.
5. Bread/garnish - When it comes to the bread, great to have it bitesize like a mini toasts, breadsticks, crackers or even slice baguettes. You can also add cured meats onto the board if you’re not already planning on making or purchasing a charcuterie board.
