it is located in Val Curone, at the foot of Monte Giarolo, in the district
of the Colli Tortonesi in the Province of Alessandria
A beautiful place where animals still graze free and where the milk is full of scents and flavors that change as the seasons change and are reminiscent of the past.
We were born in 2020, "on paper" we are young, but in reality our soul has a historical root known throughout the quality dairy sector: Vallenostra® and its work of recovering Montébore cheese.
Our story comes from afar
Ours is not simply the story of a dairy, ours is the story of a family that in a moment of difficulty came together and decided to join forces to carry on the production of a rare and very ancient cheese that has threatened with extinction: the Montébore.
a story that spans the centuries
Montébore is among the rarest cheeses in the world , whose origins are lost in time, it is produced with 70% cow's milk and 30% sheep's milk (sometimes 5% goat's milk is allowed).
Saved from extinction at the end of the 1990s, Montébore is a survivor, it speaks of the past, it fought not to know oblivion, not to disappear from the world of taste and quality.
It deserves respect, it asks for awareness.
Not just Montebore
The Montebore is undoubtedly one of the best known and sought after cheeses,
but it is only one of the dairy products.
We also produce other cheeses mainly working with raw sheep and cow milk
and goat cheese from the pastures of the Territory .
Quality raw material, recovery of lost values, respect and protection of animals
and the territory, these are the main ingredients of our cheeses.
