American Grana®

Huge wheels are created by Master Cheesemakers using fresh milk gathered daily from local farmers. This Premium Parmesan cheese is allowed to mature a minimum of 18 months on wooden shelves in our special caves. During this process, each wheel is hand-turned to ensure proper aging and develop its deep, nutty flavor and granular texture. This specialty cheese is made exclusively by BelGioioso.
