Cheese bliss the Upper Venosta Valley (Val Venosta/Vinschgau)
The highest mountain in South Tyrol's Alps lends Mila Ortler Cheese its name. It is made exclusively pure fresh milk of the Upper Venosta Valley, and is produced in accordance with time-honoured traditions.
After about 60 days of ripening, Mila Ortler Cheese forms an uneven brown rind. Its firm consistency, irregular eyes, distinctive milky flavour and mild aroma add up to a unique South Tyrol specialty cheese that is both satisfying and versatile.
Its strong and malt taste reminds the old tradition of the brewers.
The classical bacon is produced of the best piece of the leg. Refined with spices, mountain herbs and salt, the bacon is pickled for 20 days. After a cold smoke phase with beechwood filings the bacon sides are matured for a total of 5 months in our pure mountain air at controlled temperature.
