Queso de Cabra
Garrotxa, (pronounced “ga-ROCH-ah),” is an incredibly delicious, creamy, and nutty round disk of cheese that is produced in the Catalonia region of Northern Spain.
Almost driven to extinction after government intervention with farming policies in the 1980s, Garrotxa was revived by young cheese makers who rallied to begin production. Now, it is quickly becoming one of Spain’s most popular goat cheeses.
The Catalonia region of Spain offers fertile pastures and the ideal climate for Murciana goats to graze and produce their velvety, luxurious milk. The resulting Garrotxa cheese is cave aged for 4 months.
Garrotxa yields a brilliant, snow-white paste and a firm, mold-covered rind. Its flavors are goaty, earthy and mildly herbal, with undertones of hazelnuts and a hint of white pepper. It has a moist, yet almost flaky, texture that melts across your tongue, and when paired with our crusty bread, Serrano Ham, and Octavia Merlot, the resulting flavors are unbelievable.
