Our methods of production
Pienza pecorino cheese, which is made in the same way as two thousand years ago, stands apart from the others for its delicate taste which becomes spicy through traditional maturing techniques.
Today nothing has changed. The fields that run from the Val d'Orcia to the Val di Chiana are rich with aromatic herbs which give a distinctive flavour to the milk and make an excellent tasting cheese. Archaeological finds discovered during excavation at the outskirts of Pienza are evidence that even since the prehistoric age sheep rearing was dominant in the area. The legendary Pienza pecorino cheese was tied to a particular type of social structure, based on the 'mezzadria’, that is, the existence of numerous families centred on large self-sufficient farms that had very little contact with the outside world.
Our shops are situated in Pienza in Via Primo Maggio, 4, in the industrial estate just outside the main town and at Buca Nuova farm which is on the road halfway beteen Pienza and Montepulciano. You can also find many other typical products from the area.
