Valdeón cheese is a spectacular blue cheese that is made in Posada de Valdeón, in the Valdeón Valley located in the heart of the Picos de Europa. It is created by a family business that started in the 70s and already has the third generation. Valdeón Cheese has a Protected Geographical Indication that guarantees the tradition and quality of this product.

The smell of the Valdeón cheese is slightly acidic or lactic, with the specific smell of mold prevailing. The longer the cure, the lactic aromas disappear and the smell of mold intensifies and fruity aromas also appear. The flavor is salty, very intense, and spicy. The more mature the more powerful the flavors.

STORAGE & CARE

Serve it at room temperature.

We recommend storing it in its vacuum pack in the fridge as it has a cold and stable temperature.

Once opened, put it back in its package in the refrigerator.

SERVING RECOMMENDATION 

Valdeón can be a formidable companion on the plate. It is recommended to be used to spread on small portions of loaf bread and accompanied with a good strong body wine. For example, you can try our "Tosta of Sobrasadain our Jamoneria Bar and Tasting Room, which is spreadable chorizo, honey, and Valdeon blue cheese.

In the kitchen, it is perfect for preparing any variant of blue cheese sauce.
