Discover the process of making Parmigiano Reggiano in Bologna!
Witnessing the traditional processing techniques of Parmigiano Reggiano is an experience that fascinates people of all ages. It’s a unique way of seeing the culture of Emilia Romagna and discovering how one of the most important local products is born. On this tour, you get to visit a Parmigiano Reggiano producer based in the planes around Bologna.
This is a truly artisan producer making about 30 wheels of the finest Parmigiano per day. This experience requires a very early start in the morning to ensure that you see the entire process of making the authentic Parmigiano Reggiano. Discover why the production of this revered cheese is limited to a restricted area in the Emilia Romagna region and why its maturation times are so much longer than most other cheeses.
As part of your Parmigiano Reggiano experience, you get to taste the cheese at the various stages of maturation. You’re sure to be amazed by the high shelves of the maturation room. For kids, there is a complimentary notebook and pencils for drawing and writing during the visit. They also have the chance to pet and feed cows.
