  • For a foodie what's nicer than enjoy all this, I don't love the Bitto too seasoned but I must say that they are "super" casera and Bitto

  • intrigued by the fame of the Bal we passed in the House of the bitto ... beautiful underlying the Museum shop ... After an explanation about the history of this cheese and how is done we got married in the restaurant where we could taste ... a wonder for the palate ... We also tasted the porridge with superb bitto ... I recommend everyone to go visit this place ... just to be able to keep alive a tradition of many years ...

  • After an interesting visit to the cellars where ages the Bala town (now Historic Archer) and a full explanation of the history of this cheese and shepherds of the Valley, we could enjoy a great lunch with the classic dishes of the area, from appetizer to dessert. All very good and delicious.

  • A treasure trove of hidden treasures. This is the powerful impression that elicits this place, where it produces the bitto historian, said a rebel for a variety of historical reasons that terrific managers will tell you again, making you visit their winery where are kept the jewelry products of this ancient tradition. In addition to selling delicacies from Valgerola, only upon booking you can also taste locally; a magical experience. Here the words stop; only the taste can go further. Helpful information: the road to get to Gerola is not easy, especially when it snows. In front of the store there is a small parking lot. The bitto cheese produced here can be purchased directly in Milan at Peck.

  • We were 8 December 2017 and after being escorted into the Museum with a satisfying and enjoyable explanation we stopped for lunch. Staff polite and prepared advised us to taste typical kind platter of bresaola with cheese polenta taragna and pizzoccheri. great to try

  • A place where the sale is second while there cares more to communicate the history and significance of a unique product: the historic cheese rebel and the extraordinary experience of his heroic defense. Great selection of wines. Quality beers. Simple food but always of artisanal cheese makers and environmental-linked. The maturing cellar is the piece de resistance: a living museum where memory and present intertwine like a few other sites. A show the Gallery of shapes in dedication: as ex-votos of a shrine.

  • Not just a museum. Not just a tasting room. Not just a store. Here is passed down the story of a historic cheese, whose roots are hundreds of years old. Here a dozen producers rebels continues to bring their forms obtained rimanedo faithful to traditional methods (no to supplements in animal feed, no additives, no preservatives, no to selected yeasts). Here, is the home of the Bitto of origins, the rebel. I was extremely impressed by the passion and courage with which Paul Ciapparelli (the owner) and his team are carrying on the tradition of this cheese, otherwise destined to get lost: a reality whose history deserves to be made known much more than it already is!

  • awesome place, where you can taste and buy unique and exquisite cheeses and also visit the cellar where they age bitto forms (if you can buy one and let it grow old there for years), accompanied by the expert staff of the Centre.
