Founded more than 60 years ago by Eusebio Corcuera Gomez, Quesos Corcuera is a renowned producer of Manchego that also makes Campo de Montalban and a variety of goat’s milk cheeses. After many years working at Quesos Corcuera, Eusebio passed the business over to his two brothers, Ramon and Carlos who ran the business until a few years ago. Quesos Corcuera was then passed to their sister, Carmen, who is the current owner and operator.
Campo de Montalban is a mixed milk cheese, with equal parts of goat and sheep’s milk (40%) and a smaller amount of cow’s milk (20%). This is unusual for mixed milk cheeses, which typically contain a majority of cow’s milk.
Campo de Montalban was originally considered Manchego, but in 1985 the AOC standards for Manchego were changed so that the cheese must contain 100% sheep’s milk. As Campo de Montalban is mixed milk, its name was changed to the town it is produced in.
