Grana Padano

Quick Overview:

Long-celebrated as Italy’s bestselling hard cheese, Grana Padano is a crumbly, delicately sweet hard cheese that was first produced in Milan by Cistercian monks nearly 1,000 years ago. An alternative to Parmigiano Reggiano, its’ subtle flavor allows it to be incorporated into recipes without overpowering the dish’s other components.



All of our cheeses are hand-cut, by humans. For this reason, our product weights may fluctuate between 7oz and 9 oz.

First produced nearly 1,000 years ago by Cistercian monks of the Po River Valley in northern Italy, Grana Padano remains Italy’s bestselling hard cheese and was awarded the Protected Designation of Origin label, which preserves the tradition of its’ production. Produced from the partially skimmed milk of Holstein-Friesian cows, Grana Padano is then aged anywhere from 9 to 30 months, thus affecting the cheese’s aroma and flavor; younger wheels have a sweeter tang, while older wheels possess more complex, nutty flavors.

Grana Padano is crumbly and capable as both a snacking cheese or, as an alternative to Parmigiano Reggiano, grated over pastas and salads. Its versatility doesn’t end there, it also works splendidly incorporated into main dishes, such as risottos.

    I love this cheese. It is such a pleasure to work with because it grates so easily, and the milky taste is wonderful. No wonder Lidia Bastianich cooks with it so often, and now I do the same thing.

    It's a mild milky flavored cheese. I used to buy this at the Giant which used to carry DiBruno's cheeses. I was very disappointed that it stopped. I'm so glad I can buy it here on line.
