Murcia al Vino is a Goat Milk Cheese matured in red wine
Red wine is added to this specialty Spanish cheese during the aging process.
Enjoy this aged goat cheese on a charcuterie board or cheese plate.
Murcia al Vino, also called "drunken goat cheese," is a Spanish wine cheese made from fresh goat's milk. It is made in the Murcia region of Southeastern Spain by immersing it twice in red wine during the maturation process. Because of this, it is a mild cheese with a tangy flavor.
While goat milk cheeses are noticeably tangier than cow's milk cheeses in general, this drunken cheese has a surprisingly subtle flavor. This quality makes it an ideal choice for introducing someone to the world of goat cheeses. And if you're looking for the perfect cheese to pair with your wine, you really can't go wrong with Murcia al Vino.
With a reddish purple rind and a creamy snow white color, this goat cheese is an eye-catching choice for a gourmet cheese board. Enjoy it with fresh or dried fruit, crackers, and honey. Or serve this drunken goat cheese on a charcuterie platter with cured meats such as spicy Spanish chorizo or Italian prosciutto. Instead of wine, you can also pair this soft cheese with a refreshing wheat beer, a sweet hard cider, or a glass of champagne to celebrate a special occasion.
