Say cheese! An ummissable educational experience at one of Emilia’s dairies involved in the production of Parmigiano-Reggiano PDO, the King of all cheeses.

  • Dairy staff at disposal for the guided tour (2 hours)
  • Guided visit to dairy
  • Tasting of different ageings of Parmigiano Reggian
  • Everything not mentioned in the inclusions

Meet the dairy guide directly on site and start your Parmigiano Reggiano factory tour. 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.
