A Truly Artisan Manchego 

Our Manchego comes from the Cuenca region of Spain - made by a family dairy business with unpasteurised milk collected from the dairy's own herds and local farms.

Our cheese buyer has selected this cheese for its juiciness and supple texture, a bold and rich cheese with notes of blanched almonds and roasted hazelnuts. This cheese is best enjoyed with quince and a fruity Rioja. A truly artisan Manchego, with limited production, resulting in subtle, yet complex flavours.

Manchego was produced and consumed a number of centuries BC. Although it is not known how the cheese was made by our ancient ancestors, it can be said that the taste was probably very similar to the cheese eaten today, and that the methods of production were, without a doubt, similar to those used now. The cheese is named after the breed of sheep, whose milk is used in the production of the cheese, who are in turn named after the area from which they originate ‘La Mancha’. The history of Manchego cannot be told without mentioning the famous work ‘Don Quixote’ by the writer Miguel Cervantes. It is known that Don Quixote found great inspiration in the delectable cheese when writing his book. This book is one of the reasons that Manchego cheese is so gastronomically important, and popular.
