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.
