All Natural Sausage and Charcuterie made in Denver
In 1982 the Gutknecht family made their way to Colorado from Switzerland and took over an existing mom-and-pop Denver sausage company. Word spread and demand quickly rose for their authentic, old world-style European charcuterie. The hard-to-find European quality product that they produced outgrew the limits of their Cherry Creek deli, Continental Deli.
In 2002 the family’s fourth generation, Eric Gutknecht and his wife expanded operations and gained the retail accounts of Whole Foods and Costco. With the new coverage and increased demand, they met the challenge with creating more and more unique flavors of sausages. They came out with favorites like Mac-n-Cheese Furter and Smoked Buffalo & Pork Jalapeño Cheddar Bratwurst.
At CharcūtNuvo, we make every bite memorable and amazing by focusing on the “WOW” Factor.
By 2015 sales had increased so much that the company sold their Continental Deli in Cherry Creek to focus solely on retail manufacturing. They wanted to make their products available throughout the country. 99% of the retail line was rebranded as CharcūtNuvo, whose mission is “redefining classic charcuterie”. The other 1% are labeled under Continental Sausage, Inc.
One of their missions at CharcūtNuvo is to benefit both the community and the environment. In addition to their carefully sourced all natural products, they make a line up non-GMO and organic meats.
