Cabra LaMancha

Inspired by cheeses produced high in the Pyrenees mountains of northern Spain’s Basque region. As they age for 90 days, our cheese makers hand wash, dry brush, and flip each one of these brined orange beauties over and over again until they’re ready. Bello!

The Fable

The semi-soft, washed-rind favorite with a Spanish accent.

Tilting at Iberian windmills seemed overrated. Instead, we tried tilting at Iberian creameries (no cheesemakers were harmed in the process). Lo and behold, as we rode off into the sunset, we realized we had speared wheels of washed-rind cheese on our lances (aka our tongues). The fruit of our bravery and our quest when we returned: to recreate the taste of those wheels and avoid the necessity of further armed conflict.

Our fresh goat milk is first pasteurized and cooled. Cultures are added and the milk is agitated. We then add rennet and the cheese is on its way. Stirring it significantly longer than our other goat cheeses, finer curds are created. Scooped by hand into netted molds, the young cheeses are stacked on themselves to provide a gentle pressing. They are turned regularly, then brined before being put in a special aging room where their washing and brushing (aka spa treatments) commence.

Tasting Notes

Smooth, silky and versatile with a subtle grassiness.

Semi-soft texture that melts beautifully, releases even more flavor when heated.

Develops a funky, robust flavor and aroma with age.
