History

  • Asiago cheese originated in Italy and can assume many different textures, according to its aging, from smooth for the fresh, to a crumbly texture for the aged Asiago cheese.  In Italy, Asiago cheese has a protected designation of origin.  The only "official" Italian Asiago is produced in the alpine area of the town of Asiago, province of Vicenza, in the Veneto region. 

  • Today, most Asiago cheese found in the USA is domesticaly produced using cow's milk.  An aged Asiago cheese is reminiscent of sharp cheddar and Parmesan
