Get an early start for this unique tour and tasting of Parmigiano Reggiano at a family-owned cheese factory. Bertinelli is unique because they own the entire supply chain from the pastures to the cows to the dairy. In addition to the production cycle, the brines and aging rooms, you will have the opportunity to see the making of Parmigiano Reggiano and the cheesemaker working with his hands in the cauldrons feeling the "birth" of the king of the cheeses. See how milk turns into cheese, and learn about the natural aging process at Bertinelli.
After your tour, sit down for a tasting of three aged cheeses and a special cream of parmesan on bread. Learn how to use all your senses when tasting starting from the smell, to the texture, the look and the taste. As you enjoy your cheese paired with nuts, bread and balsamic vinegar, you will also learn about how cheese is incorporated in regional cuisine and culture as well as how to cut it and pair it with foods.
