For five generations the Cravero family has been hand-selecting young wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano from the finest farms of Emilia-Romagna and transporting them to their maturation caves in Bra, a mountain village in central Piedmont.

When we visited the Cravero family, they showed us their shipping journal from the 1860s. It was a hand-made and leather-bound tome with aged vellum pages filled with perfect Italian script. The tradition of selecting Parmigiano from three farms and shipping them to their customers has been closely looked after by the men of the Cravero family. Today, Giorgio runs the family business with his wife Barbara and young son Giacomo. Giorgio is a smart, good-natured and very funny man who has complete dedication to, and faith in his product. We first experienced his family's Parmigiano at the Slow Food Cheese festival in the town of Bra, Italy, where his family resides. While each wheel will vary with the season, we select our "riserva" wheels for their depth of flavor that develops only after a full three years of aging.
