RegionLa Mancha


Milkraw ewe



Manchego is made exclusively from the milk of Manech sheep that graze the plains of La Mancha. This Manchego is semi-curado meaning half-aged, it is usually six to nine months old. It has a mild, slightly acidic flavour with subtle notes of nuts, lamb fat and dried hay. The cheese’s exterior is marked by the classic crosshatch pattern from the moulds used in the cheesemaking process. This references the traditional binding of esparto grass, historically used to press the cheese.


In the early 1950s, Alfonso Anastasio Valer, married to Heródita del Carmen, grouped together land in the area where they now have their farm. They named it La Prudenciana in memory of Heródita's mother. The farm was used for various agricultural pursuits until Manchego cheese PDO was determined in 1980. The family changed gears and began producing Manchego cheese. Since then, the farm has been passed down through family members until the present day. The farm is home to 8,000 Manchego sheep whose raw milk is used to make fantastic Manchego PDO using artisan methods.
