More...

From the Trás-os-Montes region of northeastern Portugal, this dense and tiny wheel is made with raw sheep's milk and animal rennet, its rind rubbed with sweet paprika, white wine, and EVOO. It's production is very traditional, and only milk from a local goat breed, Churra da Terra Quente (Hot Earth), is used. Aged for over 90 days, this cheese is reminiscent of the sheep and the region: rugged and workmanlike. Nutty and bold, an ideal pairing with Douro reds.
