Taleggio Valley

Formaggi Valtaleggio
Val Taleggio. The natural habitat of the Taleggio cheese

Enclosed in the heart of the Prealpi Orobiche, in the foothills of Bergamo and on the right bank of the Brembo river in a landscape that goes from 800 metres above sea level to more than 1600 metres in the Artavaggio pastures, Taleggio Valley is rich in water. In this pleasant scenery, among pastures and meadows and the intense green of the woods, you can still see traditional stone roofs. Its current appearance has been shaped over the centuries by agricultural, dairy and forestry work, favoured by a mild climate even in winter.

Mountains and waters

The mountain peaks stand out in the landscape, dividing it from the neighboring valleys and the flow of the Enna, the river that runs from west to east before flowing into the Brembo at San Giovanni Bianco. Here it runs through the Seràa, ravines that have been dug deep into the dolomite rocks, an attraction for visitors from Bergamo.
This scenery, with its rich naturalistic surroundings and a harmony resulting from a sagacious union of nature and culture, has witnessed the birth of two cheeses, Taleggio and Strachítunt. These cheeses have become part of the national dairy elite and boast a centuries-old production history.
