Manchego D.O.P. Valdehierro is a one of the most world award-winning cheeses from Spain. Very complete food, a real concentrate of all the fine nutritional qualities of milk. It has a high proportion of proteins and is in fact even richer in proteins than meat. Manchego cheese also has such important vitamins as A, D and E, which are fundamental to metabolic processes such as growth, tissue preservation and calcium absorption.
Because of its nutritional values, Manchego cheese is a recommended food for people of all ages. For children, Manchego cheese’s high calcium content is a plus. For adults, the large amount of proteins it provides helps recover the daily expenditure of these vital substances. Lastly, Manchego cheese is a great food for seniors, because it goes far to reduce bone calcium loss and it is easier to digest than milk.
The history of manchego cheese is as old as the region's shepherding and time has not changed the essence of its production and quality. It has maintained its cylindrical shape and its compact texture with irregular shaped and distributed holes.
The outside is beige coloured and the cheese is firm and consistent with a hard rind. The aroma of the aged cheese is intense and well developed, strong and according to some the after taste is long lasting and intense.
The rind is brown, hard with a well defined imprint from the mould. Not edible.
This cheese has won many awards for its unbeatable quality and its exquisite flavour and texture.
