Grana Padano DOP

Italian Trademark

One of the world’s first hard cheeses, Grana Padano is made by the Cis­ter­cian monks of Chiar­avalle in the 12th Cen­tu­ry. Made from unpas­teur­ized, semi-skimmed cow’s milk, the Grana Padano will sure­ly add that extra tex­ture and fla­vor to your meals.

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Grana means ​“grainy” in Ital­ian, and this cheese adds a gran­u­lar tex­ture with a touch of sweet­ness to your dish. Full-bod­ied, this hard cheese deliv­ers a savory and nut­ty touch . It has a creamy but­tery qual­i­ty, sharp fruiti­ness and a lin­ger­ing after­taste. The fla­vors become more intense with age and the tex­ture becomes more granular. 


This Grana Padano is aged for at least 6 months. It can be eat­en alone or used as top­ping. As one of the most famous cheeses in Italy, the Grana Padano is con­sid­ered an excel­lent grat­ing cheese, which makes it a great com­ple­ment to many foods, such as sal­ads and pas­ta. It is also a good melt­ing cheese for cook­ing. Most often the rind that is too hard to eat is dropped into a pot of soup for it to melt away. 

For wine pair­ings, this cheese makes a great part­ner to light-bod­ied white wines with flo­ral aro­mas that won’t over­pow­er the cheese. Some rec­om­men­da­tions are Mosca­to D’Asti, Gewurtz­tramin­er and Riesling.
