What You'll Do
  • Discover the cheese factories of Parma on this guided tour
  • See (and smell) the fresh Parmesan and the maturing rooms
  • Taste the different aging stages of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Overview
Have a closer look at the world famous Parmigiano Reggiano, one of the main Italian culinary excellences. Not only will you be able to explore the cheese factories, but you'll also discover the secrets that led to its creation and experience a tasting.
What to Expect
Historical evidence shows that already in 1200 to 1300, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese had reached its perfect taste and consistency which has remained unchanged to the present. This was and still is possible by carefully passing on the tradition with exactly the same instructions, tips, secrets, and gestures throughout the different generations of the Parmesan masters. Therefore, the most recent history of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is essentially the history of how 350 small dairy artisans of the Parma region obtained, by way of law, the recognition of their key role in preserving the processing methods and the high quality level of the product.

Throughout this tour, you will have the chance to visit exclusive cheese factories that produce the famous Parmigiano Reggiano cheeses. You will dive into the maturing rooms of Parmesan, seeing the different aging stages and hundreds of precious cheese rounds. An expert guide will lead you through the history of this cheese and explain how it's made, from the milk stage to the actual aging round. Towards the end of the tour comes the most delicious part- the tasting of differently aged versions of the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
