What you'll do

Visit a Natural Parma ham factory and meet your local expert guide and learn the secrets behind one of Italy's best-known meats. Go to the cellar branding area. See where the meat is cooled, salted and rested. Taste some cold cuts with local wines and more. Learn the secret of Parma ham production in Parma, a city loved for its fresh-from-the-attic prosciutto. You will go to an organic farm that produces the famous Parma ham and meet the producer to discover the process of making a gourmet Parma ham. Follow the process, from the careful and accurate selection of the pigs and their diet. See where the fresh haunches are selected and salted. Enjoy access to areas such as the cooling, salting and "resting" rooms. Each room emulates the traditional winter to spring curing seasons. You will also go to the cellar branding areas, which are usually inaccessible to the public. It's here that the naso (master nose) selects the perfect products to use for the fire-branding of the twin crowns. Once produced, Parma ham finds its way to the top restaurants around the world. Taste delicious Parma ham paired with a glass of Malvasia, a sparkling, white local wine or Lambrusco wine. 2 PAX MINIMUM PER BOOKING REQUIRED PLEASE
