Cows’ milk and goats’ milk cheeses are a local speciality, along with an unusual cheese from the village of Talamello, which is left to mature in holes dug deep in the ground.
You can visit these cheese-caves as well as buy and taste this delicious cheese, which is best accompanied with honey, marmalade and a good red wine.
The local wines clearly delineate the differences in tradition and geographic boundaries.
