On the way from Château de Gruyères to the wine tasting in Morges, we had a little extra time to kill. After having some delicious Gruyère cheese both for lunch on Friday and during dinner on Wednesday night, I wanted to see where it was made. We stopped at the factory that made Gruyères' signature cheese to witness modern cheese making. Aisles upon aisles stacked two stories high with wheels of soon-to-be cheese filled the factory floor.
A machine the size of a forklift was stationed halfway down one of the aisles and was examining and brushing the cheese wheels. It would pull out a wheel from its shelf, do its thing for 15 seconds, and then place the wheel back into its shelf and move onto the next wheel. And this was all completely automated, there wasn't a human in sight.
