ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WIVB) – Cheese lovers can appreciate a new push by Wegmans to offer high-quality cheese.

The supermarket chain has built high-tech cheese caves in a Rochester facility to act like Europe’s famous cheese caves. Specialists will control the temperature and humidity inside to ripen the cheeses to perfection.

The first shipments left the cheese cave this week and Wegmans hopes it will be a boost to regional businesses.

Wegmans says it could become a game-changer in the way artisanal cheeses are finished and sold – they are the first in the supermarket industry to launch their own cheese caves.
