Gargano, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Monferrato: Presidia Cheeses and wines from the same area

Pollenzo-Banca del Vino | Wine Bank

Gargano Caciocavallo Podolico made from the milk of the Podolica cow and goat cheeses like the Cacioricotta and Canestrato made from the milk of the Gargano Goat mark the beginning of a journey from Presidium to Presidium, starting in Puglia and heading north.

After Gargano we move to Friuli Venezia Giulia, where the Çuç di Mont cheese is made exclusively with summer milk from cows that graze on mountain pastures and the Latteria Turnaria cheese is produced with raw milk from small local dairies and without the use industrial ferments. We then move to Monferrato, where the Robiola di Roccaverano represents the only historically Italian goat cheese and Montébore is made in wedding-cake shape.

Each product is combined with a wine from the same area:

  • Gargano, with Catapanus ’18 made with white bombino grapes and Casteldrione ’16 made with red Nero di Troia grapes by Cantine D’Alfonso Del Sordo
  • Friuli Venezia Giulia, with Rosazzo Bianco Terre Alte ’13 by Livio Felluga and Merlot Vistorta ’02 Vistorta
  • Monferrato, with Alta Langa Metodo Classico Pas Dosé Cocchi and Barbera d’Asti Alfiera ’03 Marchesi Alfieri

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.
