First you will visit a Parmigiano‐Reggiano DOP producer. Parmigiano‐Reggiano is strictly bound to its place of origin. Both the production of milk and its transformation into cheese take place in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna to the west of the Reno River and Mantua to the east of the Po River. The secret of such goodness originates in the place of origin, in the natural feed, and in the high quality milk with no additives. During the long aging process, natural fermenting agents in the milk give the cheese its particular flavour and texture, in other words, its typicality.
The visit to the diary will be followed by a tasting. Prosciutto DOP producer. One of the earliest references to ham production in our region appeared about 100 BC in the writings of Cato, who described the practice of burying pork legs in barrels filled with salt. The meat was then dried and smoked. As the process of making air‐cured Prosciutto was refined, the smoking step was discontinued. During classical times, hams from this region were one of the delicacies featured on banquet tables. The visit at the producer’s will conclude with a delicious Prosciutto tasting!!!
The traditional balsamic vinegar is produced only in the areas of Modena and Reggio Emilia. The families of the area have always been very proud of their production of Balsamic Vinegar, and have a set of barrels in the attic as a seal of ancient family traditions, if not a confirmation of noble family roots. Welcomed in a private property we will taste this special traditional balsamic vinegar and learn family recipes and secrets!
