Torta Del Casar

$35.00/Lb


This is a little round packed with a lot of flavor. Slicing into the top of Torta del Casar, a wafting note of freshly baked bread, honey, and a distinct funkiness are the first to appear. Spoon this creamy paste onto some bread (or straight into your mouth), and be overwhelmed by flavors of cultured butter, roasted artichokes, and briny green olives. It finishes with a touch of piquant, bitter bite, which is eased with a few slices of spiced chorizo.

Pour a glass of...
  • Sauvignon Blanc

    Typically bright and lemony, with clean citrus flavors. Can also have grassy and vegetal aromas (think green bell pepper).

    Pair with: Soft, creamy goat milk cheeses, triple crèmes or mixed milk cheeses with a mineral edge, like Nettle Meadow Kunik or La Tur.



  • Sparkling Wine

    Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!

    Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.
