Producer Spotlight: Prestes Queseria

Prestes Queseria:

Galician Family Cheesemakers Mixing Tradition and Innovation

Prestes Queseria has been making and selling cheese in Galicia, in the far Northwest of Spain, since 1991. A verdant region on the Atlantic coast, Galicia is home to Cape Finisterre (whose dramatic cliffs were once thought to be the edge of the world), the endpoint of the famous Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, and the traditional production zone for DOP San Simon da Costa.

Adela Fernandez, who runs the family store with her brother, explains that past generations originally made DOP San Simon da Costa, and diversified for economic reasons over the years.

In addition to San Simon, Queseria Prestes now makes (among others):

  • San Simon Da Costa Reserva – an extra-aged San Simon (DOP smoked cow’s milk cheese) with a nutty, buttery paste
  • Prestes Picante – pasteurized cow’s milk cheese coated and infused with traditional spicy pimentón, or Spanish paprika
  • Prestes Queso Cabra –  cow & goat’s milk cheese with a natural rind
  • Lara & Sara – the very first Galician blue, a blend of cow and goat’s milk with a natural rind

Prestes Queseria uses the milk of local Friesian, Pardo Alpino and Rubia Gallega cows, as well as the milk of Saanen goats. Drawing on their rich family cheesemaking history, they continue to grow and innovate as they look to the future.
