Liptauer Cheese

Liptauer is a soft, spreadable cheese that is full of flavor and light in texture. Made from sheep’s milk and spiced with paprika, caraway, capers, and anchovy paste, liptauer shows the cultural influences that the Hungarian border has on Austrian cuisine. This fresh cheese is often served in traditional wine taverns. Locals enjoy this specialty slathered on pumpernickel or soft pretzels, and paired with one of the sweet, white Riesling and Grüner wines produced in the region.
