Wineries and cheese shops

The best wineries and cheese factories of El Hierro

More than places to visit, the wineries and cheese factories of El Hierro are a tradition in themselves. The island is famous for its winemaking culture, with tremendously deep roots in nearly all the local families, and the wines have had their own Designation of Origin for decades. Cheeses are another one of El Hierro’s culinary treasures. They have been produced artisanally since at least the 15th century, and are the main ingredient in one of the island’s typical desserts: quesadilla herreña. Enjoying them is a pleasure indeed, as one can find cheese made with goat’s milk and autochthonous sheep’s milk, as well as cow’s milk cheese, cheeses smoked with fig tree wood...
