January Cheese Club: Iowa

Cheese ClubZamorano-cheeseCecilia
Zamorano D.O.P.
Sheep Semibold Cheese
Castile-León, Spain

Aged for 3-9 months, this DOP cheese is made from raw milk of its namesake region’s Churra and Castellano sheep. The rind has a familiar zigzag pattern – typical of many Spanish cheeses – but its flavor is all its own. This cheese is deliciously sweet and nutty with a touch of salt.

WINE & CRAFT BEER PAIRINGS:
Pair with a fruity wine such as a Tempranillo or a mellow wine such as our January Wine Club wines: Chateau Govain Merlot and the Domaine de Lilotte Bordeaux. For beer, grab something fruity and spicy, like a Belgian-Style Wheat Ale.

WINESTYLES: Fruity or Mellow
BEERSTYLES: Fruity and Spicy


Tomme-Pur-Chevre-cheeseOnetik
Tomme Pur Chèvre
Goat Cheese
Pyrenees, France

This natural rinded Tomme cheese is made from pasteurized goat’s milk. Similar in texture to Onetik’s Ossau-Iraty Cheese, however, the flavors here are clearer and brighter, with cool herbal tones to replace the nuttiness that you would get from a sheep’s milk Tomme. This is a great addition to any cheese board.

WINE & CRAFT BEER PAIRINGS:
Pair with a crisp wine such as a Sancerre or a Sauvignon Blanc – try with our January White Wine Club wine – Chateau Le Prieur Cuvée Passion. For beer, pair with a crisp Basque Cider from the Basque region of Europe (think: “what grows together, goes together”).

WINESTYLES: Crisp
BEERSTYLES: Crisp & Clean
