What is Manchego Cheese?

Produced in Castilla La Mancha, this cheese is probably the best known of the Spanish sheep's milk cheeses and the one with the most valuable history. Evidence has been found of its production on the La Mancha steppes from before the time of Christ, when Iberian civilisation was still in the Bronze Age.

Quesos Gomez Moreno - Herencia (Ciudad Real)

The Gomez Moreno family has been producing cheese in Castilla La Mancha region for generations. Their Artisan tradition dates back more than one century. This Don Gregorio D.O. Artisan Manchego Cheese is aged for a minimum period of 6 months and is made from 100% raw milk produced by a native breed of sheep. It is a natural product with an excellent bouquet.

How to identify it's real?

  • The label must contain the term Manchego. The word artesano should be present on the label in case cheese is made with raw milk.
  • When buying the whole wheel you should come across a casein tab with the cheese serial code. The text “España, Denominación de Origen, MANCHEGO” should be stamped on the rind.

  • All genuine products are labelled with the PDO Regulating Council’s logo. You should find the PDO sticker even on cut wedges.

What does it taste like?

This cheese has an ivory-coloured interior scattered by several small holes. Its taste is intense and savoury and lingers affably on the palate. The texture is silky and crumbly with a distinctive creamy flavour.

Eatapas Suggestion: How to enjoy this premium cheese.

Serve this cheese with quince and nuts for a supremely popular tapas dish. You can also serve it with bread, chorizo and olives or enjoy it in salads.

Our tip: pull out of the refrigerator at least 1 hour before serving, cut it into thick slices and enjoy it with a glass of red wine.
