Enter a world of parmigiano-reggiano cheese on a 2-hour visit to a Parma 'caseficio' (cheese factory). Watch the cheese makers at work as they separate the whey and shape the cheese into wheels. Before you leave, finish with a tasting of cheese paired with honey and regional wine. Learn the origins of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese on a visit to a cheese factory in Parma. Hear how the cheese – protected by the EU – is still produced following traditional methods. Watch the cheese makers pull the product from the milk vats, and get a behind-the-scenes look at the process of cooking and separating the whey. Visit the shaping and salting rooms before going to the stagionatura where the cheese is aged. Savor the sight and smell of thousands of wheels of cheese. Learn about the strict tests performed by the Consorzio, such as hammering the cheeses before the fire branding ritual. Then, taste different aged Parmigiano Reggiano Cheeses.
