Making cheese in Ticino

A bit of Ticino to take home with you! At the Gottardo dairy in Airolo, guests can use the wonderful milk produced by cows in the San Gottardo region to make their own cheese. An experienced cheese maker tells them what to do and after each freshly made cheese has aged sufficiently to produce a fine mature cheese, it is sent back home to the one who made it as a reminder of an unforgettable holiday in Ticino.

The Gotthard Exhibition Cheese Dairy also features a restaurant and a store.

Vacherin Fribourgeois AOP

This cheese is characterised by its distinctive flavour and reflects the entire palette of scents found in the flora of the Freiburgerland. Thanks to its melt-in-the-mouth and fragrant body, Freiburger Vacherin AOP assumes a high rank among cheese specialities. It continues to be made to an old, unique original recipe. As the base ingredient, it lends the "Fondue moitiƩ-moitiƩ" creaminess and flavour.

The creamy delicacy

As a genuine regional product, Freiburger Vacherin AOP is a subtle reflection of the entire palette of aromas of the flora found in the foothills of the Alps and on the Freiburg high plateau.
