Visiting a "caseificio" (traditional cheese factory) is like going back in time. The "King of the cheeses" actually has very old origins and today, just like nine centuries ago, Parmigiano Reggiano is still made following the same traditions and genuine methods.
You will see the cheese-makers starting to pull out the product from the milk vats and visit the enthralling shaping and salting rooms, while you will discover the aging room, the most famous and photographed space of the "caseificio". There, 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. After your tour, you will enjoy a tasting of this wonderful cheese with a dash of honey and some local wine.
