La Dama Sagrada®
This “Sacred Dame” cheese is produced using raw Murciana goat’s milk in the town of El Carpio de Tajo, just outside of Toledo. The goats belong to a cooperative of farmers who also are members of the dairy that make the cheese. Head cheesemaker Fátima ages wheels a minimum of 6 months to accentuate the best features of the cheese, which has a full, sweet and grassy flavor and great protein formation. Its finish is bright and tangy. Finding a raw goat's milk cheese is hard, let alone a truly exceptional one. We are so pleased to work with Fátima, who is the inspiration behind the name of the cheese.
