Sao Jorge Cheese

Robust flavor with spicy undertones.

Quick Overview:

Buttery golden cheese from the island of Sao Jorge.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Portugal
Milk Type/Treatment: Unpasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Sometimes contradictions can be a good (tasting) thing. Sao Jorge knows this well — it’s firm yet crumbly, sweet yet spicy, smooth yet sharp. Its buttery yellow paste is speckled with irregular-shaped eyes that showcase its unique structure created by using reserved whey cultures. This tangy cheese is anything but ordinary and a favorite of travelers as far back as 500 years ago. 

The Story

Nearly 1,000 miles from Portugal’s west coast is the tiny archipelago of Sao Jorge, a refuge for sailors and hidden heaven for cheese lovers. Its namesake cheese symbolizes the small-but-mighty flavors that come from the island’s lush countryside and complex climate. 

Usage Tips

Enjoy alongside a glass of Douro Port or a lighter Vinho Verde.
