Gallego

$12.99/LB
From the land of creamy cheeses in Galicia, Spain, we encounter a cheese that looks just like our old pal Arzua Ulloa, but without the D.O. regulations. A co-op with its own cows in Pontevedra produces this cheese and Tetilla. A round of creamy pasteurized cows milk is surrounded by a doughy natural rind. Lactic with a marshmallowy paste, it's an ideal starter on the cheese plate; its voluptuous texture would be neatly sliced by a swallow of effervescent Cava.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Tempranillo

    Medium-bodied with flavors of cherry, as well as some cranberry which lends bright acidity. Cinnamon and clove spices, and earthy, leathery flavors balance things out.
    Pair with: Sheep’s milk cheese like Malvarosa or Pyrenees Brebis, flavored cheese (truffles, herbs, or spices), and younger leaf-wrapped cheeses with some funk – think Robiola Foglie de Fico.

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit
    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.
