Visit the Pecorino cheese factory in Picinisco

The owners are very welcoming and will explain to you how cheese is made professionally. The cheese factory operates on a small scale and sells its delicious cheese to local markets and wine bars in Rome. The tradition of making this cheese in Picinisco is more than 1000 years old and this family operated factory has taken special care to preserve the traditional techniques and features of the cheese. The unique flavour of the cheese is attributed to the type of feed the animals consume and is very distinct to this area. We provide transportation to the cheese factory, it a 45 min drive.
