What You'll Do
  • Visit a Parmigiano Reggiano traditional cheese factory
  • Learn the secrets of an internationally recognised symbol of Italy
  • Taste some different Parmigiano samples with some good wine
  • Learn from a local expert guide
Visit a "caseificio" (traditional cheese factory) and learn the secrets of one of the most celebrated Italian products: Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Enjoy a final tasting combined with honey and local wine.
What to Expect
Visiting a "caseificio" (traditional cheese factory) is like going back in time. The "King of the cheeses" actually has very old origins and today, like nine centuries ago, Parmigiano Reggiano is still made following the same traditions and genuine methods.

Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is protected by the European Union and can only be produced in a restricted area, the so called "zona tipica", which includes the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, and a part of Bologna and Mantova.

You will see the cheese-makers starting to pull out the product from the milk vats. You will watch behind the scenes the master cooking, separating the rich whey and lifting this magnificent product, witnessing the particular methodology used.

The shaping and salting rooms are equally enthralling, and they are your next stop. Moving on from the salting vaults you enter the ageing room: the stagionatura, the most famous and photographed space of the "caseificio".

Here, among thousands of Parmesan wheels whose aroma ignites the senses, you will learn about the strict tests performed by the Consorzio such as hammering the cheeses before the ritual of fire branding.

Finally,of course, you will taste this wonder with a dash of honey and some local wine. A truly special start to your day.
