Golden Fleece

A beautiful and unique Manchego-style artisan cheese with delicate floral saffron threads throughout the paste. In the heart of traditional Manchego country, Queso la Aldea is producing a Manchego like no other.

Cheesemaker Antonio Poves grew up in a small town in Castilla La Mancha with his four siblings, surrounded by agriculture, herds of sheep, and cheesemaking. After 16 years working in the cheese industry, he decided to take a leap of faith and build his own dairy, which makes artisanal sheep, goat, and mixed milk cheeses. It is situated in the province of Cuenca in the heart of Manchego country. This award-winning cheese is made from Manchega sheep’s milk with precious saffron strands blended throughout the paste. Golden Fleece is aged for 4 months to produce a smooth and buttery cheese with a touch of acidity, finishing with delicate floral notes of saffron.
