Named for its aging in red wine (Viña) and the land on which it’s made (Ejido El Milagro), this creamy, red-hued sheep’s milk cheese is proudly produced by Rancho San Josemaría in Querétaro, Mexico. Sheep’s milk is derived from Rancho San Josemaría’s own herd of East Friesian sheep and is then pressed, cooked, and aged in red winea Nebbiolo from Baja, Mexicobetween 60 to 90 days in cellars. The resulting Viña Milagro is compact, semi-firm, and white, with a deep wine-colored rind. The impressive Mexican cheese took home a gold at the 2014 World Cheese Awards.

Rancho San Josemaría was born out of Martin and Catalina López’s family project in 2007 and has since won five international medals for their sheep’s milk cheeses. Through their dedication to preserving and promoting the gastronomic culture of the region, the dairy has received international acclaim for their cheesemaking and has garnered two Business Merit prizes from the state of Querétaro. Rancho San Josemaría is Latin America’s largest and most internationally awarded artisan dairy.

Tasting Notes

With a white, creamy paste and a red-hued rind, Viña Milagro has a soft, delicate flavor with notes of red wine and cave. Smells of grapes, especially towards the rind.  

Pairings

Pair it with a full-bodied Nebbiolo or try it with a tequila or mezcal for a Mexican-inspired pairing.
