What to do in Italy: Visit a Parmigiano-Reggiano Producer

Something we absolutely love to do in northern Italy is to bring tour groups to artisanal Parmigiano-Reggiano producers.

There's nothing better as a lover of food than standing before cheese-makers, who still do everything by hand and at a pace that perfectly demonstrates their sheer passion and expertise. 

So, what's it like to visit a Parmigiano-Reggiano house? Well, without giving too much away, it is equal parts fascinating and delicious. You'll get to see the traditional process, the people hard at work creating the cheese, and the finished product, while learning all about it from the experts along the way. Oh, and of course there will be the opportunity to sample this delicious product afterwards!
