Cheese! Do it yourself

With your own hands, advised by an expert cheesemaker and starting with delicious milk from the St. Gotthard Alpine region, you will make your own cheese. An unusual and fun activity to obtain an exquisite and typically Ticino product, to be enjoyed in company.  The Caseificio del Gottardo is waiting for you to turn into a perfect cheese maker!
