Oct 2019
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.

Toys ur us for cheese lovers
Jun 2019 • Couples
When you enter this looks like a little nothing special cheese shop but then you go down and you see a huge cheese aging room, a fridge where classic music is played to the aging cheese and a hall where they make tasting of cheese and wines.
They have huge selection of local and other Italian cheese some of which they age in their own way like wrapping it with hay.
The owner who has a lot of patience to explain and love for the cheese he sells is a great cheese connoisseur and the one who chose the cheese sold in Eataly all over.
So if you love cheese go, buy wrap it in vacuum and take home to enjoy. we kept it in the mini bar of the hotels and then flew it to Israel - came fresh!!!

Cheese Heaven in Piedmont
Jun 2018 • Couples
This was an amazing eye opener into the artisanal cheese varieties. Cheeses are sold and distributed from this shop. Also stored for maturation. Learnt how a basic cheese is value added with a crust of grape skins or hay. Vacuum packed and left to mature for 1-2 years. Then sat down for tasting with wine. Endless variety of cheeses

Wonderful cheese shop
Sep 2017
We had the best time doing a cheese tour and tasting at Giolito. From a confirmed "cheese lover", the cheese selections and tasting were wonderful. The staff could not do enough for us. The sit down tasting exceeded all our expectations. Would highly recommend visiting Giolito Cheese and arranging for their cheese tasting.

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.

What a wonderful way to learn about cheese!
May 2016 • Couples
We arrived at Giolita Formaggi and met Maria Cristina Crucitti, a young cheesemaker. She told us the family here have been selling cheese for three generations. They don’t make cheese – they buy from producers in the area and sell cheese to the public.

Cristina explained she used to own a farm with 80 goats and produced cheese herself. However it became too much for one person to do so she re-invented herself as a “cheese storyteller” and works for people like here. What a wonderful idea - and she does it so well!

She took us into the chilled storeroom and told us about parmigiano reggiano and other cheeses. They also have a little museum down there. Then we went back up to the shop and tasted several cheeses with a bottle of wine while Cristina told us about them. It was a wonderful morning.
