Asiago: Between the Mountains and the Plateau

The origin of dairy production in the Asiago plateau dates back to 1200 BC, making this region one of the oldest dairy production areas in the world.

The mountain cheese making season lasts from June to September in the Asiago plateau which is the largest mountain area in Europe. This offers the opportunity to experience days to discover the secrets of cheese making and local gastronomy meeting cheesemakers and Malghesi who produce the “Mountain Product” Asiago DOP , the dairy specialty made above 600 meters above sea level which was recognized by the EU since 2006.

Today there are 15 mountain huts in the Asiago plateau and in the mountainous areas of the Province of Trento, produce Asiago DOP Mountain Product according to very strict specifications.
