March 27: World Cheese Day

In life, everything has its special day, and cheese is no exception! It is one of the foods with the most history and evolution that we can find on the market, being a star ingredient both in prepared dishes and in individual tastings, both in Spanish and international gastronomy.

In this blog, we will focus on one of the most prominent cheese houses, located in the Region of Murcia , which is reaching the top positions in various competitions thanks to the quality, flavor and artisanal production of its products. We are referring to Casa Ruperto . We will tell you everything you need to know about their cheeses, and after reading this blog, you will surely feel the irresistible temptation to visit our website to discover more about this incredible and popular cheese.

History: Casa Ruperto is a small family business with a long history. In 2017 , they decided to venture into making their own cheeses. Since their beginnings, they have cared for and pampered their sheep in a special way, which is one of the secrets behind the incredible flavor of their cheeses.

Ruperto cheese production process: At all times, an artisanal process is carried out, controlling everything from the production of the sheep's food to the use of freshly milked raw milk, without adding preservatives or additives. The cheeses have a natural, edible rind, with unique flavors developed during their maturation under conditions of constant temperature and humidity. Each piece of cheese is unique due to the absence of mass or automated production.

Ruperto Cheese Selection:

Grandfather Ruperto: It comes from the raw milk of sheep and has a natural edible moldy rind. Its flavor is intense and persistent, with hints of fruit and nuts, and its maturation varies between two and twelve months.

Washed Rind: Destined for the most daring palates, it is characterized by its orange rind with an intense smell that enhances its flavor. It is creamy, aromatic and with a strong character on the palate.

Blue Cheese: With fruity and nutty notes, this cheese has a natural and edible rind. It is creamy, sweet, lactic and spicy, increasing its intensity over time due to the development of Penicillium roqueforti.

Pairing: The ideal temperature to enjoy these cheeses is 20°C. Blue cheese pairs well with sweet wines and dried nuts, such as apricots or raisins. Corteza Lavada can be paired with white or young red wines, while El Abuelo combines perfectly with barrel-fermented whites or quality red wines.
