When Ignazio(Ig)Vella, the Godfather of the artisan cheese industry, decided to put Rogue Creamery on the market, he was committed to making sure the time honored tradition of artisan cheese making continued. He found the future owners, David Gremmels, and Carey Bryant, who embraced his ideas and agreed to carry the torch well into the 21st century. Today, Rogue Creamery is thriving and in the first two years the Creamery won numerous trophies and awards, including World's Best Blue Cheese at the 2003 World Cheese Awards in London, a first for a U.S. creamery. Their long list of accomplishments also includes the coveted Best New Product Award as the World's first Smokey Blue at the National Association for the 2005 Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) Food Show in New York and Rogue River Blue took best in show at the 2009 American Cheese Society in Austin, Texas. They have garnered more than 4 trophies and 30 medals and awards.
