Manchego Cheese is produced in the La Mancha region of Spain, home of Don Quixote, and is a very popular Spanish cheese. Manchego is made with raw or pasteurized sheep's milk. Our 8 months old Manchego is made with pasteurized sheep's milk.
The rind of this Spanish gourmet cheese is inedible and it has a distinctive, characteristic to the Manchego, basket weave pattern pressed in the rind. There are specific differences in Manchego cheeses, depending on their aging period, but the cheese remains relatively sweet and mild at any age with a touch of salty nuts.
Serve this cheese in wedges, with olives and thin slices of Serrano ham, Marcona Almonds and membrillo quince preserves.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
