Antonio Carpenedo inherited La Casearia Carpenedo from his father, carrying on a generations-old tradition of cheesemaking in the family. With this responsibility in mind, he resolved never to waver from his ancestors' roots, producing cheese in the original, traditional fashion. Antonio's dedication to craft is matched only by his zeal to innovation, a trait that has led to unique cheeses such as the renowned "L'Ubriaco."
