Cheese making demonstration

Cheese making demonstration

Calling all cheese lovers! Here, the world famous Pienza’s sheep cheese.
Did you always want to know how cheese is made? Here at Podere il Casale we make your cheese dreams come true, offering you a behind-the-scenes look at the fine art of cheese making! Together our cheesemaker you learn how a traditional Pecorino di Pienza cheese is made. During the activity, our cheesmaker will guide you along the whole process: from the stable into our dairy during a guided tour, where he will also talk about the aging of cheese in our aging rooms. Afterwards follows the actual cheesemaking class. During the demonstration of a first salt cheese on the spot you can ask the cheesemaker all the questions that will come to you spontaneously during the discovery of this ancient art. Please keep in mind that this activity is very much “in depth” also on the technical side of cheesemaking and therefore not completely suitable for small kids. For them we recommend a free visit to our stables (we have maps in our reception) or a guided tasting tour.
