This was a comprehensive and fascinating tour of a Parmesan factory, starting with an explanation of the breeds of cows used for the milk!
Our guide spoke superb English and explained every stage of the process very clearly. The cheese production starts in the morning and stops for the day at noon, so we weren’t able to see the actual mixing process, but we were shown the huge room where this happens and were then talked through some video clips.
We then saw the rest of the production from that morning’s cheeses being squeezed and shaped to the final finished product. Fascinating!
Of course we got to taste afterwards: a range of ages and types, followed by a visit to the great shop which has not only an extensive range of their product but also other typical Italian items such as conserves, pastas etc.
Compared to the UK, prices were incredibly low - our supermarket prices for such a high quality product that would be exclusive at home!
A fascinating and tasty experience!

The most amazing tour, the staff were incredibly friendly and so knowledgeable. Booking was super easy and everything was perfect. We managed to see this place in the morning (taxi from station circa €20 for 4 people), great to see the process and production of the baby parmigiano reggiano, the tastings were amazing as well and the shop really reasonable prices. The only downside was it would of been good to have a coffee after but this wasn’t available in the shop. Not a problem but we would have spent more in there if they had drinks for sale. We walked to the village after for an incredibly authentic lunch and then on to the Acetaia for a superb experience. Then a short walk to the train station and back into Modena.

Very informative and interesting tour. We really enjoyed learning about the cheese making process and what makes parmigiano reggiano cheese unique. The tasting was very nice. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Very informative on the making of parmesan cheese - try to take the early tour - by noon the workers had already finished making the cheese and were cleaning up - although we did get to see the guy flip the cheese (to dry it out). Loved seeing the stacks of cheese and the tasting was good.

Definitely recommend this if you are in the area.

Go in the morning when the dairy is open so you can see them making the cheese. It does not happen in th afternoon- apparently they show you a video instead. Really interesting to see them making the cheese

Educational and fun tour for kids and adults. The storage facility where they show the raiders-of-the-lost-ark-sized aisles of cheese wheels is unbelievable. And the cheese-making process is great to learn, even if the parmagiana-reggiano pushing is a little overwhelming.

What was disappointing was the tasting at the end--the wine is awful and honestly detracts from the tasting the cheese itself. Fun overall to visit, but don't come hungry.

This was a very good tour to take while in Modena our guide Ganfranco was brilliant very informative and took pride in his work the best bit the tasting at the end was lovely and there is no pressure to purchase anything in the shop afterwards it only takes about an hour but it overruns a little bit if you ask lots of questions as our group did but it didn’t matter as it’s good to know the process

The tour take about 90 min. Go throw the places in the factory that show how they make the chees. you get some taste at the end and give you some idea on how it works. Worth the trip.

Hey! I am not an expert in cheeses but i am very much fond of them.
This “small” cooperative factory is fantastic.
Luccia was kind enough to tour me around the factory and explaining the Parmigiano Reggiano Chese making process and it was informative and very pleasent.
Thank you Luccia for your time.
Also, this place is quite close to Modenas city center which makes it very convenient to visit.
If you have time, interest and hunger for cheese and locally produced items, go visit!
Cial!
