About Finca La Prudenciana Artequeso

The cheeses are made at Finca La Prudenciana, an agricultural and livestock farm located in the heart of La Mancha, in Tembleque in Spain. It is a small town of 2,000 inhabitants belonging to the province of Toledo and less than 100 kilometers from Madrid.


It is a family business that all started with Anastasio Valera and his farmers. Years later the grandfather Santiago understood that transforming milk into cheese was something natural and necessary and in the 80s Artequeso was born. The company’s father Alfonso began to make cheese taking care of quality and know-how, and that is how they have reached today, where Marta and Santiago are training to continue with the family business.


Over time, they have added complements to artisan raw milk Manchego cheeses, in order to meet the needs of the market and have a wide variety of cheeses. That is when Buenalba and Finca la Prudenciana, two more lines of raw sheep's milk cheeses where offered. It is a totally different experience from the classic Artequeso's La Mancha.


What is the tasting profile of Manchego semicurado 6 months?

The color is yellowish and cream. The aromas are intense with fresh milk and some animal notes. It is intense in flavor too, with slightly spicy notes at the end. On the finish the flavors get stronger and it has an aftertaste with spicy points. As regards its texture it is hard and slightly crumbly.


What wine to pair with Manchego semicurado 6 months?

It is a great to enjoy with Spanish Cava (Franck Massard Mas Sardana Cava Brut Nature NV) or a Spanish white wine. We would recommend to go for Viña Pomal Blanco or Bodegas Naia, Naia. It is also a cheese that can be appreciated when paired with light red wine, such as a pinot noir (Laforêt Bourgogne Pinot Noir). Pait it with bread!
