Caprano is a semi-hard cheese made from pasteurized goat's milk and aged for six months until it develops a delicate texture with many small holes, smooth, delicate, natural rind and flavour of goat butter without the bitterness.

An aged version of Caprano aged for 18 months has an accentuated taste but without the sharpness that burn the mouth. Both versions of Caprano have won numerous awards including 2nd place winner in its category at the 2009 & 2010 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, 1st prize in two categories at the 2012 Selection Caseus and Médaille d'argent dans sa catégorie at the 2009 World Cheese Awards.
