Discover Venetian cheeses Italy

From Mount Baldo to Cadore and from the famous Asiago to Castel, every village in the Venetian mountains offers an exquisite range of cheeses. In some areas, the practice of fashioning the high mountain pastures to expand grazing is still upheld after centuries. In these areas, the cows graze freely and their milk gives the cheese a natural flavour that you can try for yourself by stopping off at a 'malga' (shepherd's hut). At Valbelluna, in Agordino or even on the Lasseni Mounts, there are plenty of shepherd's huts that make for good rest stops.
