Parm Crack with MilkFarm

Parmigiano-Reggiano wheel cutting at Rosso Wine Shop

People say it is unique and not many get to actually experience it. Well, we did.

We partnered with our friends at Milkfarm in Eagle Rock. Leah Fierro and Jacob Rodriguez came to enlighten us on the background of the wheel and the process to make and get it. Then post-crack we were able to sample the amazingly fresh Parmigiano.


EaterLA wrote about it. We sold out very quickly. 40 lucky people got to witness it (at least 25 were on a wait list). Good fun was had by all.

Oh, and the smell of the room once the wheel was opened... unbelievable!

We paired sparkling wines from the same region of Emilia-Romagna.
