Cow's Milk Cheeses:
The majority of dairy cows are found in the mountainous regions of northern and northwestern Spain as well as in the Balearic Islands to the east. The cool-loving ruminants thrive in the milder climates and terrain of those areas. Happy cows translate to better milk which, in turn,provides the building block for great cheese.
