valdeon(1)

This blue cheese is made with cow and goat’s milks at the base of the Picos de Europa in the town of Posada de Valdeón. A family runs the entire operation, everything from making the cheese to aging it and then selling it. They created it when the D.O.P. for Cabrales formed and dictated that Cabrales could only be made in the town of the same name. Valdeón is sought after because it is milder than D.O.P. Cabrales, yet retains an excellent balance of sweet, spicy and earthy flavors. A Silver Award at the World Cheese Awards in 2015. 2/6#
