Associations of Producers Valli Del Bitto


Too many people... support Culture History Tradition Environment ... just with words
The honest and brave producers have been fighting since 1994 with deeds ... for your sake, too

Paolo Ciapparelli

On tasting a ten-year-matured sliver of Bitto cheese, one is surprised by its delicious flavour, which results from its natural and genuine ingredients. This initial pleasant surprise is followed by a thousand questions about the origins and the production of such an "explosion of taste". It is therefore essential to know its history and realize that we are confronted with a manufacture which "I would define as of medieval origins and hence unique, exceptional and incomparable".

    Sinossi: È l’ora della mungitura e, come sanno i casari delle valli di Albaredo e Gerola della provincia di Sondrio, questa è l’ora del Bitto: un formaggio che profuma dei fiori e delle erbe alpini, frutto di un’antica tradizione passata di mano in mano fino ai giovani produttori di oggi.
