What you'll do

An enchanting journey where we will discover two masterpieces of Italian tradition. Let's start with the King of all Cheeses: Parmigiano-Reggiano. One of the most ancient known cheeses, produced today with same ingredients, same technique and same artisanal cure from eight centuries ago. It’s the “casaro” (the cheesemaker), who in a full-artisanal way, creates the “wheel” of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese with his own hands, sensitivity and experience. You will attend the production process and have a yummy tasting in a typical and family-run farm. But...our day is not finished yet! Our experience continues with another discovery: the result of a centuries-old history, the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia. A pleasure for all the connoisseurs. We will explore the secrets of these magical places following the whole process of aging of vinegar and tasting various samples at different stages of processing. From the cooked must to the final product, passing through the rooms and cellars where the barrel of Balsamic Vinegar are kept. A real delight experience for the food lovers.
