Long Description

These cheese styles are descended from a variety of Pyrenees mountain cheeses and have continually won Best in Show at the American Cheese Society since 1993. This package highlights the variety within this mountain style.

From top to bottom:

Queso Invierno, 1/3 pound - Invierno (or “winter” in Spanish) is a soft to semi-hard natural rind cheese made with winter milk, aged 5-6 months. The cheese is a blend of cow milk from a neighboring farm and sheep milk from Vermont Shepherd. Invierno is a versatile cheese with a rich, butter and mushroom flavor.

Queso Verano, 1/3 pound - Verano (or "summer" in Spanish) is a soft to semi-hard 100% sheep milk cheese made with summer milk, aged 5-6 months. More earthy than invierno, this cheese is truly one-of-a-kind.

Queso Invierno Extra Aged, 1/3 pound - The two year old version of Invierno is more crystalline and piquante than its younger version.
