Cheese Making Excursion, Northern Spain

Company : Instituto Hemingway
Activities: Learn Spanish / Cookery Courses / Tours
Country: Spain
Location : Bilbao, Northern Spain
Duration: 1 week to 1 year
Approx Costs: 100 to 250 € Euro

A memorable excursion to a private cheese farm paired with an Olive Oil Tasting. The stunning green mountains and isolated stone villages set into hidden valleys are out of reach for most travelers to the Basque Country, and we want you to experience it! You can take part for just one day!

Travel into the mountains and meet a Basque shepherd whose 300 head flock is at the forefront of a program to preserve and improve the Latxa breed. Idiazabal, a famous raw sheep's milk cheese is produced exclusively with the milk of the Latxa. 

The Shepard's wife will offer us a tasting of their award winning cheeses accompanied, as tradition mandates, by a fine Rioja wine. Finish with a long lunch in an idyllic village along the Aralar mountain range, with wine, of course, before turning back to Bilbao.
