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.
Would you like to watch the production of Vacherin Mont-d’Or
AOP, and see how the cheese makers attach a belt of pine bark
around freshly made cheese?
The cheese dairies of the Vallée de Joux that produce Vacherin
Mont-d’Or AOP, and the aging cellars as well, are happy to
welcome interested visitors during the production period from
late September to April.
