Guggisberg Cheese is home of the 2019 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest winner.

The company's Baby Swiss Wheel took home to top prize Thursday night in Green Bay with an impressive score of 98.54 out of 100. Contest Judge Dominique Delugeau brought the cheese by Live at Daybreak for Susan Kim and Vince Vitrano to try on Friday.

The Ohio-based cheesemaker also won the contest in 2015 with their Premium Swiss, traditional-style wheel.

Overall, Wisconsin cheesemakers dominated the 2019 competition, earning gold medals in 60 of the 116 contest classes and sweeping the gold, silver, and bronze medals in 25 classes.
