Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The tour & tasting at the famous Consorzio Vacche Rosse Parmigiano Reggiano at Reggio Emilia was amazing. Finally checked the box to visit this amazing place. This is really an amazing experience but make sure that you make a reservation before you visit so that you can definitely do the tour and tasting 🐄 🧀 🥛

This was a highlight of our entire trip to Italy. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and really went out of the way to make the tour enjoyable. You really get to see the factory in motion and watch the workers make the cheese from a few feet away (in full PPE, of course). We were so awed by the tradition and care that goes into making the products, and getting to taste the 24, 30+, and 40+ month aged cheese at the end was among the best cheese I've ever tasted. This is a can't-miss experience in Emilia-Romagna and all of Italy.

We booked a tour about 4 weeks in advance and Tomaso greeted us at the entrance. His tour was fun and thorough. We were able to see all stages of parmigiano reggiano during the 2 hour visit and taste a couple samples at the end. If you want to know how it’s really made, this tour is for you.

The consortium of the red cow has a funny name but there's nothing funny about the product being made here. The flavours here are phenomenal and the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. If you have the time, take a tour and learn all you can. Make sure to ask the staff for a tasting of all the ages of the cheeses and they'll gladly oblige. the 24, 30 adn 40 month varietals are very different and all delicious. On your way home, grab some butter for your bread, some parmeseano for dinner and make sure you grab a panecotta, as they're divine! Thanks to all the staff for a fantastic experience!

We went as a family to see how their parmigiano is made. Usually they require a reservation but they showed us around anyway. The guide was extremely nice, polite and the tour was very informative and interesting. It was a great experience throughout. You could see they really care about their product and the superb conditions in which it is made. At the end we got to taste the actual cheese at various stages of maturity (which was delicious) and naturally, we left their shop laden with cheese. You do have to pay for the tour but it is definitely worth it. A must see!

Totally a waste of time. I'd been looking forward to visiting this place for months. We called to see if we could join a tour within a few days and were told no they were too busy, but that's fair enough as they do say on their website to book 20 something days in advance worth an ask because it worked for a tour of a balsamic vinegar place in Modena). Anyway we went there just to buy something and maybe see a nice display but the drive there is ugly the factory looks like a detention centre the shop front is nothing special and there is only vacuum sealed 1kg blocks of cheese to buy. No tastings no fancy big wheels of cheese to see, nothing. I'm sure that they make good cheese (even though I haven't tried it) but it's not a tourist destination unless your schedule allows you to book a tour weeks in advance then maybe it's ok but even then having seen it I wouldn't bother.

I went on a fun an educational tour here. There was an english translator for their old professor. It was interesting to learn about the process and to get to taste what cheese last like as it goes through the process. At the end, their cheese options were rather tasty.
