Juan Monaco paid a visit to the ‘cheese cathedral’ in Gstaad, following his first-round win Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad on Monday.

“I recently visited a cheese dairy in my hometown in Tandil,” Monaco told “It was great to get to know more about the history of cheese here in Switzerland.

“This is a very special place with a nice atmosphere. I like to eat cheese. It’s something I have pretty often. We got to taste some and it was excellent.”

The cheese is stored in temperatures of seven degrees Celsius and it has to age for two years before it can be eaten.
