What to Expect
After hotel, station, or airport pickup in Bologna, visit a factory that makes Emilia-Romagna’s unique Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Enjoy the rare opportunity to see the entire process, from the early-morning milk delivery and work of master cheesemakers to the storage and aging. Savor a breakfast with cheese tastings and Lambrusco wine, and perhaps purchase some cheese at below retail price. Next, visit a family-run business producing Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena D.O.P. See the age-old techniques and enjoy a full tasting, comparing a 6-year-old balsamic with 12- and 25-year-old varieties. Continue to a prosciutto producer to see how this regional delicacy is made, and sample fresh slices of prosciutto di Modena D.O.P with Lambrusco wine. Finally, enjoy a gourmet lunch with wine at a countryside trattoria or organic winery before drop-off at the departure point.
