Valdeon Blue Cheese from Leon
This is a very special Cheese. Often passed off as another famous Spanish blue, Cabrales Valdeon the cousin of the powerful blue Cabrales.a bold and spicy blue made from seasonally blended milk of goats and cows that graze the Picos de Europa Mountains in Castilla y Leon.
It is often prefered for its dense veining and balance of salt and spice, compared to the often inconsistent and over-the-top rusticity of Cabrales.
Valdeon makes a pretty package with its powdery white rind peeking out behind a protective layer of sycamore or oak leaves. It’s a hearty blue that loves fresh fruit and strong red wine or sherry.

|This is one of the best known Spanish blue cheeses, from Leon, high in the Picos de Europa mountains. (D.O. Valdeon) Made from a mixture of unpasteurised goat, cows and ewes milk, the cheese is matured for three months in natural caves, rich in Penicillium mould, which penetrates and blues the cheese, creating its strong but not overpowering flavour, much like Roquefort but less salty.
Try this cheese with our new bitter-sweet pickled green figs, and to drink: a sweet wine such as our award-winning Moscatel, or the rich rasiny Pedro Ximenez sherry.
