Description

Enter a world of parmigiano-reggiano cheese on a 2-hour visit to a Parma 'caseficio' (cheese factory). Watch the cheese makers at work as they separate the whey and shape the cheese into wheels. Before you leave, finish with a tasting of cheese paired with honey and regional wine.

Meet your guide at the caseficio in Parma, and start your tour to learn about parmigiano-reggiano, aka the king of cheese.

The famous hard cheese is guaranteed in its origin, so only Modena, Reggio Emilia, Parma, and some parts of Mantova and Bologna are able to produce it. 

See the producers at work as they heat the milk to separate the whey. Watch as the cheese is salted and shaped into a wheel before it’s placed in the aging room.

As you admire the rows of wheels, hear how the cheese is hammered, fire-branded, and subject to stringent tests before it is finally allowed to be sold as parmigiano-reggiano. 

Finally, finish your tour and sit down for a cheese tasting with honey and local wine. 

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
