Contest Rules

Finalist cheeses

The GourmetQuesos Championship, that celebrates its 13 edition this year, is now established as the most important of those held in Spain as the number of cheeses presented grows every year since its beginnings in 2009: currently more than 800. Samples are blind tasted by a 60 member jury formed by professionals belonging to every stage in the cheese sector: technicians, master cheese makers, store managers, bloggers and gastronomic journalists, chefs, department store managers and restaurant managers. The Contest awards 60 prizes (3 per category), as well as choosing an overall winner, who is awarded the title of "The Best Cheese in Spain".

After the first selection, determined in the Semi-Final, the 100 finalists are chosen (5 per category). To do so, the judges weigh up different aspects such as the rind, colour, texture, smell, flovour, aftertaste and persistance of each of the samples. The winner receives a diploma accrediting it as "Best Cheese of Spain 2023".
