The 2018 World Cheese Awards held last week in Norway saw a record-breaking 3,500 cheeses from all around the world being judged on Friday 2 November by an international panel of 230 experts from 29 countries, and once again Canarian cheese performed superbly, winning 2 Super Golds, 7 Golds, 11 Silver, and 15 Bronze medals. The World Cheese Awards are organized by the Guild of Fine Food committee, and among the Canaries’ 35 medals were gold for Adeje’s Montesdeoca dairy for its wine-cured goat cheese, and a bronze for Flor de Güímar for matured goat cheese with gofio rind. The full list of Canarian cheeses which won medals in the World Cheese Awards is HERE.


  1. I bought the wine soaked cheese in Lidl yesterday, they also had Montesdeoca’s semi cured plain cheese there too

  2. Where can these be bought ? Cant say I know of any specialist cheese shops/outlets.

      Mostly from the dairy’s own shop and Hiperdinos (most Hiperdinos anyway). There are also some smaller chains selling them, like Dialprix I believe.
