"Cradle of Ibérico Ham"
The climate of the Guijuelo area has very cold winters and very hot and dry summers, which is perfect for breeding and curing Iberian ham. Rainfall is not abundant and the average temperature varies between 25º and 35º.
The geography and orography of the area are characterized by belonging to a mountainous landscape, which contrasts with some plains, valleys and low-lying mountains. Its average altitude is 1000 meters above sea level, which makes it perfect for the proper drying of the pieces.
A lifetime dedicated
To the art of Iberico
At Jamones Juan Manuel we control the complete production cycle to guarantee the highest quality in the final product. For this reason, we have our own cutting room to proceed with the selection and cleaning of the product, a salting room to preserve the ham for the time that corresponds to its weight. And finally rooms dedicated to embolado, in order to give the ham its peculiar shape.
