Chorizo Ibérico de Bellota: A Key Piece of the Spanish Gastronomy

Chorizo is one of the most representative cured meats in Spain along Jamón, Lomo and Salchichón (Salami). You can have it as a “tapa”, in a “bocadillo” (sandwich), or paired with other products such as Cheese and Jamón. Its unique flavor conquers every palate.

Chorizo Ibérico de Bellota

Our Chorizo Ibérico de Bellota is handcrafted with the finest pork meat from free range Ibérico pigs that have been feeding on acorns and natural grass from the Dehesa forest in Andalusia.

The Premium meat selected to elaborate our chorizos is marinated with paprika and other special herbs, and then stuffed into a natural casing to better preserve its flavor.

For the artisanal curing process, each piece of chorizo will rest in our natural “secaderos” and “bodegas” in silence and harmony for more than 2 months. We patiently wait until they are at its optimum curing point.

Each piece is approximately 1.3 lb and has a distinct flavor, aroma and texture which makes them unique and different from any other cured meat you’ve tried before.
