Manchego cheese is always a winner: the most popular cheese in Spain without any doubt. It comes from the La Mancha region, Don Quixote’s land, and it is made from indigenous sheep’s milk. This young and mild Manchego cheese is aged for at least 3 months creating a flavorful and creamy cheese perfect to combine with grapes, membrillo, or nuts. In fact, it is quite common in Spain to serve it as a dessert. Remember to keep it in the refrigerator for longer conservation. Wrap it in plastic film or use a cloth soaked in olive oil to cover it, as the traditional way.
Manchego is a DO name-controlled cheese, which can be made only from the milk of the Manchega sheep that graze in the provinces of Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, and Toledo, all of which form the region of La Mancha. The best cheese is produced when the milk is the richest, between August and December. The pattern on the rind honors a time when the cheese was wrapped in sheets of woven esparto grass.
