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 Valle di Blenio, at Caseificio del Sole, you can discover how the ancient art of transforming milk into cheese takes place based on traditional methods.

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