Cheese Vega Mancha was founded in 1998 by chance like most things in life… Two friends who had shared dreams, projects, and had a great time enjoying artisan cheese at home that Peter brought from a factory near their village, Munera, a small hamlet called Sotuelamos. From there the little farm grew in popularity and recognition to become what it is now. http://www.vegasotuelamos.com
