The Ossola mountains in Italy offer, even at high altitudes, wide expanses of land well sheltered from the winds for animal grazing, and from these features, local mountain people through the centuries have been able to make cheeses of great value.

An exemplary case in point is the summer production on the Monscera Alp (2,100 meters above sea level): very limited quantities, a few hundred wheels each per year, processed in July and August and made to descend to the valley by mule.

When great-grandfather Luigi Guffanti began aging Gorgonzola in 1876, his genius intuition was the purchase of an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the province of Varese. Five generations have passed, the attention to the artisanal quality of the cheese product and the passion for careful ripening continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, consolidated to this day as one of the best ripeners in the world.
