What to expect

Your English speaking driver will pick up you in an elegant Mercedes vehicle and drive you to Gorgonzola, located only 40 minutes away from Milan by car. This is a unique experience for those who are curious of local tales and myths and of the history of a famous Italian cheese. The tour is also for cooking enthusiasts who wish to learn how to cook delicious recipes with gorgonzola cheese. Italians and foreigners passionate about legends and traditions, people who love cooking and cheese, especially the fresh and strong flavoured ones like Gorgonzola.

In about 1820 Marquise Busca Arconati Visconti, born Serbelloni, ordered her governess Ginevra to invite to Gorgonzola the most famous food tasters from the most important European courts to taste the cheese bearing the name of the village where it was created. The cheese, until that moment, had remained hidden only on the tables of the poor, but it is so good that it is high time to promote it to the table of the rich. Do not hesitate, accept the invitation of Ginevra! An actress, playing her role, will reenact the entire scene to let you live the story. It will be an occasion to bring you to Lombardy, close to Milan and, who knows, the cheese could indeed be as tasty as the invitation claims.


You visit Gorgonzola as it was about 200 years ago, sharing Serbelloni family tales and gossip. Here you discover the secret origins of the Gorgonzola cheese and how luckily it has reached its actual yummy smelly fame. You will also have the possibility to do a special tasting of this exquisite cheese, paired with local wines that for sure will not disappoint you.
