Gran Casar, our great tradition

A cheese as characteristic as GRAN CASAR could only be the result of a great story, which has taken place since the Middle Ages in a single place, the region of Casar de Cáceres, where natural and human conditions converged so that a fortuitous and mysterious event made it possible.

Raw sheep’s milk, vegetable rennet and salt

With only three ingredients you might think that the making of a cheese as peculiar as GRAN CASAR cannot hide any big secrets. However, behind its unmistakable flavor and creaminess is the heritage of great expertise, the result of the traditions and splendorous nature of its place of origin.

Our heritage, the mastery of its elaboration

In addition to the origin and quality of its ingredients, one of the main secrets lies in the mastery of controlling its maturation process of at least 60 days, which causes intense proteolysis that finally turns it into a delicious and creamy soft pasta that is ideal to spread.

“El Abuelo” is a name that conveys familiarity and experience, an image that in its most idyllic sense evokes the transmission of good values and that acts as a reference of knowledge for the delicate development of new generations. And it is precisely that connection between old and young, between wisdom and freshness, where we find balance and meaning for our traditionally made fresh cheeses.

Fresh goat cheese has some qualities that differ from cow cheese. Specifically, goat’s milk gives fresh cheese a more pronounced flavor, and on the other hand, as it contains less lactose, it is more digestive and appropriate for delicate stomachs. At a nutritional level, in addition to the nutrients mentioned above, goat milk also provides iron, vitamin D, K and riboflavin.

Villa Noble, a cheese originating from the north of the Sierra de Cáceres

Villa Noble de Cabra with La Vera paprika, is one of our most distinguished cheeses. A classic of the gastronomy of our land, in which we have invested all the traditional know-how of the areas of the northern mountain range of Cáceres (La Vera, Las Hurdes, the Sierra de Gata), the Ibores and Villuercas mountain ranges, and the San Pedro mountain range.

An exquisite mild, slightly smoky flavor

From 30 to 45 days of maturation with La Vera paprika are enough to acquire that characteristic flavor of this highly appreciated spice. Combined with pasteurized Retinta breed goat milk, the result is a cheese with a soft, tender and creamy, slightly smoky flavor. Its appearance is compact, with practically no eyes inside, with a whitish colour that contrasts with the rind covered with Pimentón de la Vera.

Villa Noble, Goat Cheese

with Paprika Flakes from La Vera

Cheese made with pasteurized goat milk, animal rennet, salt and slices of Pimentón de la Vera, which we add to the mixture. Paprika flakes are small slices of smoked paprika from which ground paprika is obtained.

La Natera, Ripened Cow Cheese

With Raw Cow’s Milk

Cheese made from raw cow milk and animal rennet. Firm and elastic texture that favours its tasting, smell of cured cow milk. The flavour is intense for a cow cheese and comes from the raw milk and 90 days of maturing.
