Picture this: just milk, rennet and salt. Yes. That's right, cheese!

The biennial International Cheese Festival in Bra, organized by SlowFood, is the world's largest and most important festival dedicated to raw milk cheese and dairy product.

The overall aim is to promote regional producers and local products who are under threat from inevitable market forces of globalization. Nearly 500 producers of Italian and international excellence with cheeses of all types, shapes and sizes and for all tastes. 200,000 visitors, a rich programme, enhanced by conferences and debates addressing the future of a great product, but also topics which are important to Slow Food such as sustainability and food education for younger generations.

Not to be missed by food lovers! Villa Monforte Barolo is only a 20-minute drive from this great event.
