Parco Regionale della Grigna Settentrionale


The Tastes of Grigna
Without a doubt, the knowledge of a territory goes through the taste and fragrance of its local products: the simple, genuine, and tasty products of Grigna Settentrionale Park are the result of a long history, traditions, and expert gestures handed down from father to son.
The floral richness of the mountain pastures and the skillful management of the agricultural holdings still working with traditional methods lead to the production of a particularly fine milk and, as a result, mountain cheese maturing in caves, fat and semi-fat cheese, butter, ricotta cheese, the very tasty goat's milk cheese - fresh or mature - born to be eaten together with berries, local jams, and honey: intense tastes preserving and enhancing the traditions of the territory.
The terraced slopes facing Lario give us the excellent olive oil PDO, fruit of the wonderful local climate. A stop to directly taste on the spot this great heritage of traditions, history, and taste is well worth your journey here! Maybe also combining it with one of our rich characteristic dishes, first of all polenta taragna!
