Pinnacle of Picos de Europa – Valdeón Blue Cheese
Embark on a gastronomic odyssey with Valdeón Blue Cheese, a culinary jewel hailing from the heart of the Picos de Europa, more specifically, the Valdeón Valley in Posada de Valdeón.
Family Legacy, Culinary Excellence
This extraordinary blue cheese is the offspring of a family-owned enterprise that traces its roots back to the 1970s, now thriving in its third generation. Nestled within the cradle of the Picos de Europa, Valdeón Cheese echoes tradition and quality, proudly sporting a Protected Geographical Indication that safeguards its essence.
Valdeón cheese delights the senses with an aroma that commences as a gentle acidity or lactic note, gracefully intertwined with the unmistakable scent of mold. As time weaves its magic, lactic aromas fade into the background while the mold’s presence flourishes, accompanied by the emergence of captivating fruity nuances.
