Once upon a time there was a secret place where the King of all cheeses was made by the skillful hands of the wisest men in the middle of green meadows, with happy cows pasturing all around and an enchanted forest as their natural background… and that place is still there!

Meet the guide directly at the dairy and start your visit of an authentic producer of Parmigiano-Reggiano PDO: you’ll discover how the King of all cheeses has been literally made by hand in the same way since the Benedictine monks invented it 10 centuries ago! From the curdling into the typical copper heaters to the salting and the final ageing in the so-called wheel cathedrals, you will be a privileged witness of almost all the steps of production of this out-and-out food icon. Tasting at the end.

You will join a shared tour made by the staff of the dairy. The producer can be max 30km far from the city center.
