Our motto is " Shop. Eat. Learn." and there is indeed so much to learn about this incredible iconic Italian product: Grana Padano.
Grana Padano is one of the world's first hard cheeses, created nearly 900 years ago by the Cistercian monks of Chiaravalle Abbey, founded in 1135 near Milan. The name comes from the Italian word grana which denotes cheese with a characteristically grainy texture, and the adjective Padano, which refers to the Po Valley Plain area of northern Italy, the only place where the milk used for this cheese can be from. A wheel of Grana Padano is cylindrical and weighs 53 to 88 lbs: pretty big chunk of cheese!
