BEING THE ARTISANAL MAHÓN-MENORCA CHEESE
THAT STANDS OUT AMONG THE BEST
It’s not easy to choose the best from the best. It requires a unique degree of rigour, an eye for detail, care, patience, knowledge and passion. And that’s exactly what we do in Quintana. How to select the best from the best?
We work every day on the symphony of the perfect flavour.
WE SELECT, CURE AND TUNE THE BEST SOFT CHEESE ON THE ISLAND.
THE QUINTANA MASTER AFFINEUR
Only this man’s extraordinary sensitivity developed over years and years of experience is able to perceive that unique stamp that is the heart of all our cheeses. The Master Affineur is like the conductor of the orchestra who gets the best out of each instrument. He selects the best product and then works on it, carefully handling and indulging it until the best result is achieved.
A GREAT SELECTION, A CRAFT TRADITION, AN ANCESTRAL SECRET…
Mahón-Menorca cheeses are like no other cheese in the world because of the exceptional conditions under which they are made. And of this wide range of extraordinary cheeses, Quintana’s speciality lies in knowing how to select the best. Because we don’t make cheese. We tune, we interpret the perfect symphony of elements.
To be enjoyed with all 5 senses
DISCOVER OUR CHEESES
To get the best symphony you have to surround yourself with the best musicians. Just as in order to obtain the best cheese, you have to surround yourself with the best craftspeople. Dedication, care, attention, knowledge and much more. Because in order to make our cheese it is necessary to apply all five senses. Hearing to focus on listening, touch to mould and shape, smell to perceive all its essence, sight because no matter what they say, love also enters through the eyes, and taste.
