Trentigrana production is overseen by the Grana Cheese Protection Consortium. Its production is therefore the same as Parmigiano Reggiano, except its milk sourcing and production most occur in the Trento valley, known for its lush Alpine pasture and exceptional milk.
Formaggi Ciresa is a leading affinatore of Lombardia. Their work includes selection, aging, packaging, and distribution of cheese, particularly the traditional cheese families of Lombardia: Stracchino, Gorgonzola, Latteria & fresh cheese.
Founded in 1927, their multi-generational relationships with cheesemakers allow for incomparable representation of these regional styles, in addition to PDO cheeses throughout Italy.
