BEHIND THE PRODUCT: Not only is each Montaraz Ibérico pig allowed to graze on over two acres of forage during its eighteen months of growth, the Iberico pigs destined for the Bellota (acorn) designation feast on a diet of acorns during the montanera season, a period between October and January,  where the acorns fall from the oak trees that populate the Dehesa or grazing pastures. Nearly doubling its weight on this acorn diet during these final three months of life, the ham is then cleaned and cured for 4 years. Every step of the curing process is held to high standards and closely inspected to ensure the finest of quality, a quality the Montaraz family has maintained since 1890. With ancestral expertise handed down from father to son for four generations of master ham makers, The Montaraz family has used time and experience to create a product that is truly memorable.
