Manchego Cheese

    Manchego, arguably Spain's most famous cheese, hails from the Castilla-La Mancha region. Made from the milk of Manchega sheep, this cheese is available in different ages, ranging from fresh and soft to firm and aged. A young Manchego pairs wonderfully with a light, fruity red wine, while an aged Manchego goes beautifully with a full-bodied Tempranillo. Enjoy it with quince paste (membrillo) or Marcona almonds for a traditional Spanish experience.  A noteworthy fact is that due to tightened restrictions around the formal designation of the Manchego Denomination of Origin, only cheeses with 100% sheep's milk can be formally labelled as Manchego.  There are milk-blend cheeses made in the Manchego style (hard cheese, firm rind) that are very similar.  Learn more about all Spanish Cheeses here.
