Pastures and Dairies in Venosta Valley

Venosta Valley Pasture Cheese

Pastures and dairies have characterized the Alpine landscape for many years. The keeping of livestock and the production of butter and cheese in the pastures dates back to the High Middle Ages.

Along with milk and butter, raw milk cheese is also produced in the pastures.

The origin, authenticity and quality of the products are always guaranteed.
