On a journey to the origins, we discover the Serra da Estrela PDO cheese. Kept from generation to generation, it reaches our days with the same genuineness and authenticity. Let's discover this unique flavour and a story that brings together landscapes, hands and faces... the dedication that gives Serra da Estrela PDO Cheese an exceptional soul.
Let's live new adventures. Enjoy the fields between the mountains that extend to infinity. Accompany the herds and participate in their milking. We are shepherds for a day and we know that the staff carries wisdom and love. We literally get our hands dirty and learn how to make cheese. We know that the secret is in the milk, but also in the dedicated hands that mould them. We sit at the table, or on the floor, outdoors, amid the silence and splendour of a place blessed by nature. With time, we savour and taste: This is a unique cheese, we mix the bread and the olive oil, we delight ourselves again and again and we surprise ourselves with a thousand and one creations and harmonisations.
Through landscapes, traditions and flavours we will live.
