Between the pastures and vineyards of Lombardy

Pollenzo-Banca del Vino | Wine Bank

The products of mountain dairies, commonly known as “malga” in Italian, offer the best guarantee of naturalness in cheese: healthy animals feeding on fresh grass, whose milk is worked with traditional processes.

Here we’re tasting extraordinary cheeses like the Bagolino Bagòss and the Historic Rebel (both Slow Food Presidia), Strachitunt (Ark of Taste), Formai de Mut and Silter, all proud standard-bearers for natural cheese in Lombardy.

In this tasting each cheese is matched with a wine from the same region:

  • Bagolino Bagòss – Maurizio Zanella Rosso Ca’ del Bosco
  • Historic Rebel – Valtellina Superiore Grumello Rocca de Piro ’15 Arpepe
  • Strachitunt – Moscato di Scanzo, Azienda agricola Biava
  • Formai de mut – Chardonnay Santissima Annunciata Bellvista
  • Silter – San Valentino 2017 Togni Rebaioli

Pollenzo, six kilometers from Bra, is the other main hub of Cheese 2019. A special shuttle service will take you from Bra to Pollenzo and back, so you can create your own program and move around easily without using a car.

The event can be booked online until 12 p.m. on September 19. During the days of Cheese you can buy any remaining tickets for this and other events at the Event Reception.

Banca del Vino: Piazza Vittorio Emanuele 13, Pollenzo.
