A unique taste, a thousand-year old tradition.
Producers Association of Robiola di Roccaverano PDO
In the hills around Roccaverano – a small town located in Piedmont – a special cheese was born, the only one of its kind in the world. Its name is Robiola di Roccaverano PDO: it is our treasure, we produce and protect it with passion and enthusiasm!
It is a soft-ripened cheese made with 100% goat’s or goat’s and cow’s milk, handcrafted exclusively in the area around Roccaverano.
We add exclusively animal rennet after the acidification process has begun
We gently transfer the curd into special perforated moulds
We add salt on both faces during turning or at the end of the shaping process
Fall in love with Robiola
“This Robiola is sophisticated, for connoisseurs, and it tells us about clean goats, from their fur to the stables, and then about yoghurt, butter, heated milk, pastures, pungent vegetables, moulds, yeasts, and mushrooms. It recalls a cellar full of intense smells. Scents, aromas and taste are explosive and long-lasting and at the same time clear and balanced, with powerful elegance.”
Fondazione Slow Food
“Soft and creamy, delicate and rich, nothing short of "delicious". A special cheese, truly hyper-local, because everything, from pastures and producers to local breeds and fodder, must come from the PDO geographical area.”
The Robiola Hunt
The Robiola Hunt project has been conceived to help you find the shop which is closest to you and then let us know about it: we will add it to our treasure map!
