Beppino Occelli: the taste can't be only told
The productive relation between man and nature, specifically between Beepino Occelli and the Langhe and the mountain pasture, is born and develops mostly through the milk of different varieties (cow, sheep and goat) and all pf them are incredibly fine, because the final properties of the butter and cheeses are strictly bound to the goodness and freshness of the milk.
For this reason the Beepino Occelli's "milky way" is born in the Langa (Piedmont), goes through the best territories and arrives to Valcasotto, here the best mountain cheese wheels finally rest and mature in the old aging cellar following the traditional methods.
Beppino Occelli started his activity in 1976. The Beepino Occelli's butter and cheeses have always followed the evolution of the taste, actually they have even anticipated it: from the famous "Tuma della Paja" to the extra rare "Escarun", considered by everybody and unique and inimitable delight.
The best Beeping Occelli's cheeses are born from a evolutive way of the taste and the continuous research of the quality of the raw materials, profoundly linked to the territory.
The "milky way" is in fact born in the Langhe, than it continues in the province of Cuneo in the Castelmagno gazing lands and it finally reaches Valcasotto. Here the aged cheeses in mountain, thanks to the constant cures of our seasoners, finally rest on wooden boards that develops the taste and enrich their structure.
Beppino Occelli's passion for the local tradition, matched with it creativity, has produced a wide variety of cheeses (fresh, semiaged,aged, with truffle, riserve, DOP... etc) very appreciated by the gourmet for their qualities.
