A whole-piece Artequeso Sharp Manchego Cheese with Protected Designation of Origin
Our whole-piece Sharp Manchego Cheese comes from Artequeso, the artisan company of Finca La Prudenciana that works under the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO).
Finca La Prudenciana was created at the beginning of the 1950s, but it was not until 1984 that it began to produce Manchego cheeses with the PDO and, in this way, added value to its products.
This Spanish cheese factory has received a multitude of awards and combines livestock farming with agriculture. Its main characteristic is the combination of natural and traditional methods with new technology, thus helping to maintain the high-quality standards that Artequeso cheeses are known for.
Moreover, Artequeso is protected by the Protected Designation of Origin, which means that the corresponding Manchego cheeses must be made in accordance with certain guidelines laid down by the Regulating Council, such as the Manchegan sheep breed, the only breed permitted for production. It is therefore not permitted to mix milk from other animals or other breeds of sheep.

Why is raw milk so special?
This Artequeso Sharp Manchego Cheese stands out for its production based on raw milk and exclusively from Manchegan sheep.
Raw milk is milk that has not been treated under the pasteurisation process, therefore, raw milk maintains some of the bacterial actions. These actions make the cheese itself authentic, with its own character and personality and unique flavour.
