Grana Padano is one of the most popular cheeses of Italy. A hard, semi-fat cheese that matures slowly. It is produced all year round from cow's milk, and aged for a minimum of 10 months.
This product has medieval origins. The Cistercian monks first discovered it as a method of preserving milk that could not be consumed the same day is was collected. The cheese immediately became highly valued and very popular.
Today, just as a thousand years ago, Grana Padano is produced and grated in 32 provinces of Piemonte, Lombardia, Emilia Romagna, Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige, with milk coming from the fertile valley from which it takes its name.
Since it is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) product, the entire Grana Padano production chain must take place in the area of origin.
