Pecorino Sardo Dolce DOP is made from sheep's milk from an ancient Sardinian breed of sheep. Sardinia's ancient pastoral tradition has made the production of cheese one of their gastronomic specialties. The sheep live in a healthy natural environment and can graze on herbs (heather, myrtle, rosemary) that grow wild in the plains, in the hills and Supramontes. In fact, Sardinia is the largest producer of pecorino in Europe. The Cooperative of Ovine Breeders (CAO) was created in the 70s by a group of shepherds in order to preserve and maintain their dairy tradition. This cooperative has grown through the years and milk is collected from the provinces of Oristano, Cagliari and Nuoro and processed within 24 hours.

Pecorino Sardo Dolce DOP is a sweet, tender sheep's milk cheese aged for a minimum of 20 days. Slightly straw colored with some eyes, this lovely table cheese has a sweet and delicate flavor celebrating the aromas of the Sardinian pastures. Enjoy with a full-bodied red wine, at the beiginning or end of a meal or to accompany savory dishes.

How We Ship

FreshWave Packaging

Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality. 

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.

Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
