European Sheep Cheeses

One of the most outstanding European cheeses of Spanish origin is sheep cheese, as P.D.O Idiazábal, P.G.I. Queso Castellano, D.O.P Queso Zamorano, and of course, the D.O.P Manchego.

The P.D.O Manchego cheese is the European cheese, with Spanish origin, most consumed in the USA. For a cheese to be called Manchego, it must be made from La Mancha sheep’s milk and mature for at least 30 days.

This cheese is distinguished by its pressed paste, natural color and acid flavor, with a slight intense touch, but with an exquisite taste. It is also characterized by having a pattern on its rind and being divided into four equal parts.
