Birchwood has been traditionally used in cheese preservation for hundreds of years. Its bark has been wrapped as a belt around soft cheeses for even ripening and added woodsy flavor, and has been made into barrels for the aging of Greek Feta. It’s also been used during the smoking of Idiazabal cheese. Most importantly, birch has been used as shelves for aging in caves. Its tight surface is slower to absorb and release moisture, making it excellent for long-term storage. The finished birch featured in this model is sustainably made, and non-toxic. The finish on the birch makes it mold and stain resistant, both in the interior and exterior.

The Grotto Fresco has a smaller footprint of 7 inches by 9 inches with a height of 8 inches, making it the perfect size for the metropolitan cheese lover with a smaller refrigerator who loves entertaining on the weekends. Shelving heights accommodate just about any cheese.

It features a bio-based, non-toxic, anti-microbial floor made of linseed oil which helps naturally regulate any mold growth and the genuine leather tab makes for an easy grip on the sliding door.

The back panel is breathable, making for a perfect climate for simple, long-term storage of wedges and small wheels of cheese in the refrigerator. For more advanced preservation for the true connoisseur, check out the Grotto Classico.

Use & Care

• For long term storage of cheese, it is recommended to keep the Cheese Grotto at refrigeration temperatures (34ºF to 39º F, preferably 39ºF)
• Hand wash shelves with extremely hot water and a splash of distilled white vinegar
Allow the Grotto shelves to air dry between uses
• For maintenance of the Plyboo shelves, a monthly application of mineral oil is recommended


Wood has the potential to harbor bacteria and pathogens if not cleaned properly and regularly.

Though Cheese Grotto’s Jessica Sennett is an expert at bringing out cheese’s best flavors, she is not an expert in food safety and she does not offer any opinion about food safety. New York Department of Health regulations requires restaurants to store cheese at a temperature below 45 degrees F, except for up to two hours during preparation for food service. Nothing in Cheese Grotto’s materials, including statements regarding the shelf life of cheese, is intended to (and the materials should not be interpreted to) conflict with food safety regulations and recommendations.

The Perfect Personal Cheese Cave

Wow! I am so impressed with my Cheese Grotto. I had trepidations about spending so much. Well worth the price. This came so thoughtfully packaged with tips and care so this piece will last for many years. It also included the mineral oil for caring for the wood. I eagerly placed my cheeses within and have been enjoying their scrumptiousness.

Thank you so much for leaving your review! Reviews like this give us so much joy.

Well made.

I love this cheese storage grotto. Also would make a great gift. Well made.

perfect in every way

We love our cheese grotto for housing and showcasing the best high end cheeses.
Beautifully constructed, the Fresco is ideal for our "twosome" lifestyle and more.
When covid is behind us, the Fresco will definitely be a part of our wine tasting parties for 8 to 10.
It is perfectly sized and can accommodate wheel or wedges, for a tastefully quaint wine pairing and cheese party.

Taking care of the cheese!

We are new to the Cheese Grotto and have loved learning about the product and more about cheese in general. The size of our cheese grotto is perfect and fits nicely in the fridge falling in line with the Home Edit efforts that we have done with our fridge. We have a cheese & cocktail Happy Hour sampling different cheeses right off the boards. Makes each night feel special in these trying times.

Thank you Erica, I'm so happy to hear the Grotto has brought joy into your life this year!

Brona Cosgrave
An investment that keeps on giving!

What can I say, I love cheese! Many times, I've over bought only to have hard inedible bits of cheese lingering in my fridge. Since buying a grotto, I've eliminated such waste and enjoy a myrid of cheeses at their optimum. So easy to maintain. Absolutely worth it

Thank you, Brona!
