Formatges Cuirols La Nou de Berguedà
Josep Venturós opened the Formatgeria Cuirols in 2007, when he had had a herd of goats for 13 years. His illusion had always been to make cheeses like his grandmother's.
At Cuirols we look for sustainability, return to our origins and defend the production of raw milk. Our cheeses are made with raw milk and we work with our own ferments. This preserves the flavor of milk, a dynamic taste, where you can see how the taste of cheeses varies depending on the herbs that goats eat and the seasons of the year.
The goats are of alpine breed, which is very robust, endures the cold very well and is a great dairy. They live in a corral with an outdoor patio and go out to graze every day in the Sierra de Catllaràs. Their diet is based on cereals, fodder and natural pastures.
The Carbonera is a lactic curd cheese. It is coated with charcoal and offers a fresh and mild flavor.
