Manchego cheese is the most important and well-known sheep’s milk cheese in Spain. It is made only from whole milk of the Manchega sheep raised in the "La Mancha" region. It can be recognized by a unique zigzag or cross hatch pattern on the rind which is created by the rippled surface of the molds used to make it.
