Parmigiano Reggiano cheese tasting tour in Parma
- Discover a traditional cheese making factory
- Learn the history of the most famous Italian cheese
- Smell the aroma of aging cheese
- Enjoy a Parmesan cheese tasting
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. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is protected by the European Union and can only be produced in a restricted area which includes the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, and a part of Bologna and Mantova.
See the cheese-makers starting to pull out the product from the milk vats and visit the enthralling shaping and salting rooms. Discover the aging room, the most famous and photographed space of the "caseificio". Here, 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, enjoy a tasting of this wonderful cheese with a dash of honey and some local wine.
