Waister Trattoria were SO friendly and helpful; in their limited English and our super limited Italian, we asked where we could go to see a cheese factory. We couldn't find anything on our GPS or our phones. The owners are actually friends with someone who owns a small-batch cheese factory!! So they gave us directions, and we went there after eating. It turned out to be even more awesome than we had hoped for.
We asked if we could ever see them making cheese, and they said they do it early in the morning. They must have seen our disappointment, because they offered to take us downstairs to the little factory and show us around!! We were so excited; we took a lot of pics. They are below.
Fresh, "new" cheese, both photos above. Cheese aging in the cold storage room, two pics below.
The kids were excited to see cows again; we haven't seen any since the Azores. The Italians move the cows up to the mountains in the summer and bring them down in the winter (I think).
