“A fissare con una lente d’ingrandimento una scaglia di Parmigiano-Reggiano, rivela un panorama: simile ad una foto dell’Emilia dall’alto.”
“Staring at a piece of Parmigiano-Reggiano with a magnifying glass, it reveals a landscape: like a picture of Emilia from above.”
The tour includes the visit of two dairies: in the first one we will attend the final part of the processing of the Parmigiano, the second one to get a taste of 4 different time of seasonings (24, 30, 36 and 42 months).
Matched with a glass of Franciacorta, jam, jellies and balsamic vinegar.
Then we will move to Fontanellato, dominated by the historic “Rocca”, also visitable for English-speaking, to taste some rarities: the Tosone and the Parmigiano “12 months” with typical cold cuts. From here we will move to a local delicatessen to taste the Parmigiano from vacche rosse’s milk, along with the Tortelli d’erbetta and finally we will visit a local place that offers balsamic vinegar ice cream.
The tour will end at the initial meeting point.

Our “local food guide” is Valerio: he is a young and enterprising man who knows Emilia inside out, like his home, because it is his home. He traveled all over the world to better understand and learn the secrets of cooking.
His passion and knowledge are the perfect mix to introduce you to every culinary detail and every perfect match.
Yes, there are tours for guests who cannot ingest gluten, but we cannot assure cross-contamination.

For our tours, with the exception of “What The Great Musicians Ate”, sports or elegant clothing is not necessary. However we recommend comfortable clothing – better to avoid heels or uncomfortable shoes and suits… these tours are made for walking!
Unfortunately, Italy is not at the forefront in removing architectural barriers, so we cannot assure to overcome them all as they are present in almost every step of our tours. We are very sorry for this.
