COVICA is a farming cooperative established in 1981 and focused on cheese production from Merino sheep milk, all of them under the PDO Queso de la Serena, considered by culinary experts as one of the best cheeses in the world. Located in the south of Extremadura and with vast grasslands, mountains, and pastures, La Serena provides the perfect environment to herd the Merino sheep. Tasting a Serena Cheese is the result of a precise, traditional, and artisanal process that transform milk on this tasty delicacy. The Artisan Sheep Cheese is matured within 3 and 4 months and made from raw Merino sheep’s milk, full-flavoured, persistent taste, and an elegant bitter aftertaste.
