MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Swiss Emmentaler has won the title of 2014 World Championship Cheese in Wisconsin.
Cheesemaker Gerard Sinnesberger took top honors for his Original Schweizer Rohmilch Emmentaler, a large format, big wheel Swiss cheese.
Out of possible 100 points, the Emmentaler scored 97.85 in the final round of judging Wednesday. The cheese scored top honors out of 2,615 entries from 22 countries.
An Austrian entry, called Erzherzog Johann, was second. Another Swiss entry, Gruyere AOP, was third.
U.S. cheesemakers scored big in the competition, winning gold medals in 59 of the total 90 categories judged. Switzerland came in second with seven gold medals, while the Netherlands had five.
Among U.S. entries, Wisconsin dominated with 33 gold medals.
