This factory has been operating in Pasturo since 1960 and produces an internationally award-winning range of hand-made dairy and goat milk cheeses that have become Italian classics.
 
Here you will visit their local production site and taste their top quality cheeses, such as gorgonzola, latteria, primo sale and goat milk products. A light lunch including risotto or a pasta dish paired with a glass of wine will be served at a beautiful setting with mountain view.
