 Product Description

An elegant and tasty goat's milk cheese, originally from the southeast Spanish coast. Called Murcia al Vino, and fortuitously available in the US under the pseudonym "The Drunken Goat".

It features a wash in red wine as part of the production process. The wine bath imparts its flavor and burgundy color to the outer rind thus producing a distinctive and colorful cheese with a fruity scent of wine. The rind of this cheese is edible and once cut will reveal a bone white interior paste. The flavor of Murcia al Vino has a hint of salt a slight acidic tang and a hint of wine but not an overt goaty taste. Overall this is a mild cheese that is not really complex but it will reward your palate. Murcia al Vino has a low fat content of 45%.

The incredible notion of soaking cheese in wine resulted from government pressure in 1986 on local cheesemakers to innovate a unique and delicious cheese to put Murcia on the fromage map, so to speak.

Perfect Pairings

Summer is a great time to enjoy this cheese so serve Murcia al Vino with sweet summer fruits as a table cheese or as an appetizer with crusty bread or crackers. Also try it melted on your favorite sandwich or shaved into salads to add an interesting new flavor and a distinctive color. Spanish Reds like Rioja or Riberia del Duero or other fruity Spanish Reds and Whites
