Pienza Pecorino cheese tour

A tour to discover Pecorino cheese from Pienza, with a visit to a local dairy

This tour will take you to discover one of the best Tuscan products, right at a dairy farm located in the beautiful hills of the Val d'Orcia (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Here, you will observe the techniques of cheese processing, meeting these artisans of flavors, understanding the differences between the various types of Pecorino cheese, and finally you will learn to taste it. Flocks of sheep graze on the Val d’Orcia hills, feeding on the herbs offered by this area: the result is a high-quality milk, which, once it is processed, turns into the famous Pecorino cheese, with its unmistakable flavor. Be it fresh, semi-seasoned, or seasoned, you will realize that Pecorino cheese from Pienza is excellent in every version, pure or paired with honey or jams.
