Gestures, tastes , and history of a family and its cheese
“Heart and arms, passion and tradition. This is the only way we know how to make cheese.” This is the mantra of the Buccio family, what accompanies them in their daily work, and what they explain to “Malga del Re” customers. Because if it is true that Bagòss is born from Bagolino’s good cow’s milk and a pinch of saffron, it is equally true that you need to also have love for your region and the desire to preserve and innovate this great cheese-making tradition. The result is Bagòss, produced with milk of Braunvieh cows grazing in Bagolino’s pastures. “Malga del Re” mountain cowshed is specialized in the production of this fantastic cheese, which the Buccios age up to 6 years.
This operation is being revived by numerous mountain lovers and those who are passionate about traditional healthy products. We want to join in and learn more about Bagòss and the Buccio family. Gianluca is our tour leader. Surrounded by cheese wheels, he explains the stages of Bagòss production and how the work day is organised. We will enjoy a guided tasting of the “Re” (King) and other mountain products served with local marinated vegetables, jams, polenta, and an excellent glass of red wine.
In the warm season, those who are interested can reach the pastures and visit the on-site production: sip the milk and wave to the cows!
Adults, families, and children. Gourmands who can’t miss the opportunity to try quality local products. Lovers of healthy, artfully served dishes.
