Manchego Cheese

Quick Overview:

Smooth and meltable. The taste of tradition mixed with comfort and pure, simple bliss.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Spain
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Sheep
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Pick any word that one might use to describe cheese. Buttery? Nutty? Grassy? Rich? Yummy? All of these describe Manchego, and it's easy to see why this has been a bestseller at our shops for years.

The Story

Not only rich in flavor, Spain's most popular cheese is rich in history as well. Southern and Central Spain hosted many an ancient dispute over pasture lands between the Christians to the north and the Muslims to the south. Conquered by King Alfonso VI, the Muslims were forced further south, and the region was left in political turmoil. However, because of the discord, the farmers of La Mancha formed cooperatives which made the socioeconomic fabric of the area much stronger.

Usage Tips

You can Manche-go your own way with this one, but it's a sandwich cheese at heart. Melt it on anything and pair with a Rioja Tempranillo or sherry for dessert.

shipped with care

Your order is guaranteed to be handled with care and shipped with an eye toward ensuring the products arrive as fresh as possible. All of our perishables are packed in insulated, heat-resistant packaging with safe, re-usable ice packs. If you should also order dry goods, we neatly pack them around the other materials, enclosed in a sturdy, corrugated container.

It generally takes one business day to receive and process your order. Shipping speed selected at checkout applies to the time in transit only. The delivery clock starts once the package is picked up by our carriers, not once you submit your order, and there are times when our fulfillment team may hold certain orders to process and ship after the weekend in order to ensure product viability. Please note processing times may be extended during the holiday season.
