The affineur is an artisan who gives support to small-scale farmers scattered across the mountains and hills of Piedmont. He researches, refines and markets their best cheeses produced for generations, ensuring the sustainability of the microeconomic system. In the charming village of Bra, home of the Slow Food Organization and the Cheese International Festival, we can arrange a tour with a master affineur, followed by a guided tasting of cheeses from dairies with limited production capacity, never on the market on a large scale.
