Last fall for a long weekend we drove to the Veneto, namely into the area of Conegliano. Our main focus, I have to admit was to stack up on as many bottles of Prosecco as Signor Rossi can carry but Gustav wouldn´t be *team formaggiastic* if he wouldn´t have pointed out some cheese hot spots for us.
So here, an excursion for mind and heart and a short idea post for your future travels; two cheese places we went to and happily recommend for your next trip to “Prosecco Land”.
- Cheese cooperative *Latteria di Soligo* combines the work of about 200 producing members under one label, all of it with a strong work ethic concerning animal and product.
2. *Latteria Perenzin*right outside of Conegliano on the other hand is an award winning cheese forge, that, with a lot of heart, sweat and knowledge creates admirable goat’s milk cheeses as well as cheeses from cow’s and buffalo’s milk. (the latter I (unfortunately only) heard are formidable.]
*Latteria Perenzin* also has an adjacent cheese bar and offers the possibility to visit their ripening rooms. Unfortunately we found this cheese parlor on our last second in the area so it was too late for an in-person appointment, but…Gustav says.. – we will be back!
