Grana Padano EAT-Box: Live Tour of San Pietro Dairy and Guided Tasting

Grana Padano EAT-Box: Live Tour of San Pietro Dairy and Guided Tasting



Your EATales guide for Grana Padano is Laura Zecchini, spokeswoman for the award-winning Latteria San Pietro. She will show you how soil, tradition, art and science combine to create this exceptional grainy cheese – the “Grana” of Grana Padano.


It all begins with hay, the ‘precious forage’ that grows so well in the Po valley – the “Padano” of Grana Padano means ‘from the Po Valley’. Dairymen nurture their cows using digitalization and scientific milking technology that closely monitor milk quality and the cowshed environment.


You will visit the cowshed and learn about milking technology and digitalization used to monitor the quality of the milk, as well as the environment of the cows. 


Then you will see artisan cheesemakers who apply the human touch to processes and techniques both age-old and regulated by the European Union through Grana Padano’s protected designation of origin – PDO (DOP in Italian.)

The craft of the dairyman is the heart of the production. He is the first person who, every day, begins working in the morning, and the last going home.


Grana Padano cheese is then shaped and stored. You will also be stunned by the amazing view of the storage room

The sight of thousands of golden cheese wheels, each 24-40 kg (53-88 lbs.), stacked floor to ceiling in storage rooms is indeed impressive!


At the end of the streaming live tour, Laura will guide you as you sample the cheeses you received in your EAT-Box.
