Subaida is backed by three generations of creating artisan cheese. If there’s one thing we’v e learned after all these years, it’s that time is an essential ingredient in our cheeses.
Time brings flavor, texture, and color to each of our varieties. Our cheeses are left to age until they have fully matured. Some need only a few weeks, while others take years. Only then will they acquire their truly authentic flavors .
This soft cheese has been aged for 5 weeks, the same length of time that Elvis Presley’s “LOVE ME TENDER” ranked number one on America’s top hits.
This semi-cured cheese has been aged in a cellar for 3 months, the same as the lifespan of a male honey bee.
This cured cheese has been aged continuously for 6 months, the same length of time that the swift can remain in flight without stopping.
This aged cheese has been matured using artisan methods for a year and a half, as long as it took Goya to paint "La familia de Carlos IV"
We at Subaida are firm believers in autarky, and we do everything possible to create our products using only the surrounding resources. Only then can we ensure that their flavor is unique. Our Mediterranean jar is a delicious example.
We use pieces of our cured cheese preserved in extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with chopped arbequina olives and a blend of Mediterranean herbs grown on our farm (basil, oregano, and rosemary).
