The San Simón da Costa cow's cheese is a soft textured, semi-hard cheese, which has an exclusive and prominent flavour.

Made in the province of Lugo from cow's milk from the Frisian, Alpine Brown and Galician Blonde breeds, this cheese from the San Simón da Costa Designation of Origin has an intense tradition in Galicia. The region of Terra Chá is where these characteristic cheeses are made following a traditional recipe from using the best raw materials.

In addition to the excellent raw materials, the main characteristic of this cheese is that it has been smoked with native birch wood from the Galician forests, and has been matured for 200 days unlike the other cheeses, accentuating its very particular flavour and aroma.
