Fun in Tuscany

You will have the rare opportunity to view each step of the process, including the heating of the fresh milk and the separation of the curds, the crafting of the curds by the "Casaro" (dairy-master), the formation of a single cheese mass, and the birth of the so called "twins". You will explore the impressive "cheese library", housing more that 6 million euros worth of Parmigiano Reggiano. At the end of the visit, you will be treated to a full tasting of Parmigiano Reggiano aged 13 and 25 months, as well as other delectable breakfast treats. Tour continues on to one of the region's oldest historic "acetaia", a family-owned farmhouse where the famous D.O.P. Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is made. Savor the distinct and delightful aroma of this certified "black gold" (aged for a minimum of 12 years) and learn about the methods and wood barrels used to produce this artisanal treasure. Another tasting opportunity allows you to compare different ages and varieties, including Balsamic Dressing aged 6 years, Traditional Balsamic Vinegar D.O.P. aged both 15 and 25 years. From the acetaia we will take you off the beaten path to one of the best "prosciutto" factories in the region. Here you will meet a family that for over three generations has been committed to making one of the world's most delicious pork products. At their factory in Modena, you will learn all about the strict regulations, the lengthy curing process, and the tremendous care that goes into ensuring that all D.O.P. prosciutto, including Prosciutto di Modena D.O.P. and Prosciutto di Parma D.O.P., meets exactly the same high standards. After the tour you will be treated to some freshly cut slices of Prosciutto di Modena D.O.P. together with some refreshing Lambrusco Grasparossa wine. What's next? AUTHENTIC ITALIAN LUNCH at a countryside original "Trattoria" or in a Certified Organic winery, a perfect ending to a day filled with the very best of Italian food culture, here you'll experience the famous Italian Days "LIGHT" Lunch ... an orgy Lunch ;) eating and drinking the best food and wine that our area has to offer!
