Winners of World Cheese Award 2019-20 for their Parmigiano Reggiano
Unpasteurised cow's milk
We are big fans of this Organic Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, it is a truly exceptional cheese. And now we have added their 60 months Parmigiano to our range.
Left to mature for 5 years, this Parmigiano has an even stronger and more decisive taste and amazing granular texture. An extended ageing process also increases the already impressive nutritional values of this cheese.
Our organic parmesan is produced by Teresa and her family on a wonderful organic farm in the Emilia Romagna region where the cows are treated with respect and roam freely in a quiet environment and are fed only with hay and organic cereals. No herbicides or chemical fertilizers are used at any time.
This 56 month Parmigiano tastes incredible by itself, goes perfectly with balsamic vinegar and full-bodied red wines and is excellent in recipes that need notes of sharp flavour.
Guaranteed Cruelty Free
We are confident that our producers raise their cows with the utmost respect for their welfare.

All DOP Parmesan must be aged for at least 12 months. Ours is matured for a minimum of 36 months making it a deliciously nutty, crunchy cheese.
The DOP mark: As a DOP (PDO) 'Protected Denomination of Origin' cheese, our Parmesan has been guaranteed and certified by the Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium in Italy. This is the best guarantee of excellence in a European agri-food product. Production, processing and preparation of our cheese takes place exclusively in the Parmesan cheese DOP area of origin - any other Parmesan (and there are many, many copies) which does not have this mark is just cheese!
Parmesan is a very versatile hard cheese, excellent as a table cheese with its full and delicate flavour. It is great eaten alone or served with a good aged balsamic vinegar from Modena, truffle honey, pear mustard, fig jam or fruits such as pears, apples, kiwi and nuts. It also gives flavour to all of your recipes and is of course unbeatable when grated on pasta dishes. Don't waste any part of your parmesan - even the rind can be added to soups and tomato sauces!
Enjoy it too as part of an aperitivo! Pair it with dry fresh whites or spumante (Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Prosecco for example), with medium bodied reds (Sangiovese, Barbera d’Alba, Morellino di Scansano, Falerno), and also more structured reds (Nobile di Montepulciano, Super Tuscan, Chianti, Amarone, Aglianico, Etna). It can also be enjoyed with our sweet Malmantico Vin Santo.

How to Store
Keep wrapped in naturally waxed paper in the fridge, ideally inside a slightly opened container so that the cheese still gets some oxygen. This Parmesan should keep for up to 2 months. Remember to remove from the fridge an hour or so before serving to bring up to room temperature..

Caseificio Bio Reggiani
Caseificio Bio Reggiani was started more than 30 years ago by Teresa and her husband with a barn and 5 cows! Today they have 1200 cows and their way of raising them has not changed. They are free in the stable, the bull does its job and is fed only with hay and cereals grown by the farm.
8 years ago, they decided to take another step forward and began producing organic milk. Then just 2 and a half years ago realising that they cultivated fodder, had cows and produced their own milk they also began to make cheese too. Today as well as the Parmigiano they also produce caciotta, butter, mozzarella and ricotta - all organic.
Teresa and her family now also recycle organic animal waste to produce light and hot water. They do not waste anything and make the most of every resource that they have. The farm is a supply chain "short” or "at zero km”. It means that all stages of production (from the cultivation of cow forage to the packaging of our products) take place within the farm and dairy.
