Tour Description

Discover the origins of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese with a visit to a Parma cheese factory. It will be possible to see how this cheese, protected by the EU, is still produced following traditional methods, exclusively in the Typical Zone of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and part of Bologna and Mantua. This extraordinary cheese was produced for the first time nine centuries ago by Cistercian monks in the Parma countryside.
During the visit it will be possible to witness the extraction of the Parmesan cheese from the boilers, where the milk is cooked, and then move to the brine room and then to the maturing warehouse.
In the warehouse it will be possible to see thousands of wheels of different seasoning and our experts will carry out the "beating" to evaluate the quality of the product.
Finally, there will be a tasting of Parmigiano Reggiano of different ages, accompanied by balsamic vinegar and local sparkling wine.
