Cheeses from Albarracin win 13 World Cheese Awards and make history

Cheeses Sierra de Albarracin becomes the great winner of the World Cheese Awards 2016 at the International Cheese Festival, which in its 29th edition was held in San Sebastian for the first time.

With 13 awards we can boast of being the most awarded dairy in Spain in 2016-17. It is an amazing success in the prestigious "Oscar" awards about cheeses, the most important international event in the cheese sector, involving more than 3,000 cheeses from 35 countries of the five continents.

A total of 9 cheeses from Albarracín have achieved at least one of these recognized international awards adding to our list of awards 1 Super Gold, 1 Gold, 4 Silver and 7 Bronze.

Silver Label cheese: special jury award

Our aged sheep cheese, in addition to a silver medal, has won the Super Gold award, that is, it becomes one of the 66 best cheeses in the world chosen by the jury, a huge recognition for having competed against almost 3,100 Cheeses from all over the world.

Blue Label cheese: Gold medal

The Gold Cheese Award 2016 won by Sierra de Albarracin was taken away by our delicious mild cheese.

Cheeses from La Cava de Mía: dream debut with 2 silver and 2 bronze medals

With barely a few months in the market, the gourmet cheese La Cava de Mía continues to accumulate awards. The newly elected Best Cheese of Autumn has seen how its two varieties win a total of 4 World Cheese Awards. A magnificent debut in these awards.

Gold Label cheese: 1 silver medal

Our semi-cured cheese made from raw sheep's milk, known as "Gold Label", win a new medal to add to its track record: 1 silver medal

Green Label cheese in rosemary: 1 silver medal

The aromatic sheep cheese in rosemary adds a new silver medal to its particular history in these awards.

Red Label cheese: 2 bronze medals

Our mature sheep cheese or "Red Label" already knew what it's to get a bronze medal at the World Cheese Awards. This year this cheese made exclusively from fresh pasteurized sheep's milk has been awarded with a double bronze medal.

Wine Cheese: 1 bronze medal

Again, our sheep cheese in red wine won a World Cheese Award. In this edition, a bronze medal was added to the gold one already obtained in a previous occasion.

Black Label cheese: 1 bronze medal

For the second consecutive year, our cured cheese made from raw sheep's milk gets an award in this international contest. Our Black Label cheese won two bronzes in 2015, and this year has got a new bronze medal.
