We were in Bra just for a brief time, but had heard about this place and decided to visit. Great cheese selection, which we were able to sample before buying, incredibly friendly folks as well. If you love cheese, this is the place to go.

One of the most known cheese refiner in Italy, his shop in Bra (Piedmont, Italy), a tasting of 5 different Piedmont cheeses with a glass of red wine (see photo), all this during Bra cheese festival 2017. Can you desire more ?

The personel are very helpfull for all information about different local and regional cheeses. We visited the rooms where they produce all local cheese. I think they have around 100 different cheese where you can taste them before buying.
