Caseificio dimostrativo del Gottardo

Cheese factories: an experience for the true connoisseur

If, like writer George RR Martin, you are happiest when holding a sharp knife in front of a good cheese, a visit to one of the ‘demonstration’ dairies is a must.

At the Caseificio del Gottardo dairy, you can watch as artisans produce Gottardo, Tremola, Lucendro and Airolo cheese rounds. Fancy a taste? Why not! In Blenio Valley, at Caseificio del Sole, you can discover how the ancient art of transforming milk into cheese takes place based on traditional methods. There is also the Töira Cheese Factory waiting for you with its delicacies! 

If you’re a cheese-lover, get ready to say ‘cheese’!
