Fantastic, informative tour from beginning to end on the process of making Parmigiano Reggiano, The king of Cheese! Beginning at 8:20 am and finishing around 11:20 with a tasting of 3 aging stages of parmigiano. A wide assortment of parmigiano related items are available to purchase. Also available, excellent locally made frizzante wines, jams, honey, vinegars, sausage and of course, Parmigiano. I booked an English tour which should cost more instead of the free app. Our tour was in Italian & English. All of our questions were answered and the tour wasn't rushed in any sense. This latteria is family owned and has been for generations. They take their product very seriously and do everything by hand, daily! Shipping is available, please, please contact them and ask. They are more than happy & willing to make it happen for you & cut the middleman!!! You can taste the love & dedication to this true artisan product. What would the world be like without Parmigiano Reggiano? I cannot imagine!

We visited this dairy today and we're able to watch the Parmesan making process from beginning to end. They do a fantastic job of explaining everything and show you into all parts of the facility. Delicious cheese, too!

Educational. Recommend an English speaking guide ( book ahead) , to better understand the process steps, aging, grading, & distribution. Prompt start 08:20 , approx. 2 hours, finale light tasting & beverage in the retail site..
