About

Zamorano first became famous because of the Castilian sheep that thrive in the cold and humid climate of central Spain. As its popularity grew, families from Zamora would travel all over Central Spain in order to make and sell this famous and ancient cheese.

Taste Notes

This raw milk cheese has an intense flavor that does not overpower. Its sweet, buttery and slightly piquant flavor will pleasantly linger in your mouth.

Pairings

Delicious with young fruity white wines, such as the white wines of Galicia, Sherrys from Jerez, Muscatels produced in Navarra and Valencia.
