Asiago: in the beginning it was sheep's milk

Let's start with the territory of origin of this cheese: the Altopiano dei Sette Comuni, around Asiago. An area where, since the early Middle Ages, a tasty cheese prepared with was produced sheep's milk, which then also served to provide the wool to the factories of Alto Vicentino. The plateau, in the Middle Ages, was one independent republic inhabited by people belonging mainly to the ethnic group cimbra (of Germanic origin), you became part of the "spontaneously" Republic of Venice in 1405. Over the last few centuries, with the improvement of meadows and pastures, sheep farming slowly gave way to bovine, and cow's milk took the place of sheep's milk. The transition took place between the 16th and 17th centuries.

The history of this product has been lost over time together with that of the population of the Asiago plateau from which the name derives. There are very few testimonies relating to the previous century of the year 1000.

Sheep farming was the predominant activity between the tenth and fifteenth centuries in the plateau of the Sette Comuni, a very fertile soil that produced good herbs.

Here a good sheep's milk cheese was produced, also obtaining the wool destined for textile and artisan activities at first, then industrial in the Alto Vicentino valleys.

Over the years and with the modernization of techniques, the 1500s saw the gradual replacement of sheep with that of cattle. Only around the nineteenth century this replacement was definitively completed.

Until the mid-nineteenth century the production of Asiago was made on the plateau of the same name, but then gradually it also extended to the foothills, to the neighboring plains and to the nearby Trentino huts. The cause of this spread was the depopulation of the Setti Comuni Plateau during the First World War.

At that time Asiago d'allevo was produced, also called pegorin in the local dialect, whose forms after months of seasoning, were cut and had a fragrant consistency.

Around the twenties, the real production of Asiago began, but the short-aged one, also called Asiago pressed, because the freshly produced wheels were subjected to a pressing through manual or hydraulic presses.

In 1995, Asiago cheese obtained the Typical Denomination, and later with the D.P.R. of 21 December 1978, it had the Controlled Designation of Origin.

A year later the Consortium for the protection of Asiago cheese was born, produced by 56 social dairies to safeguard the characteristics of dairy production, with the aim of improving the quality and quantity of the product, promoting it commercially and supervising the denomination. , managing any legal actions to repress irregularities and abuses. Asiago had fame and fortune, only in the current century, increased production in ever greater quantities and was able to satisfy the whole market.

Today Asiago is the fourth DOP cow's milk cheese in our country, for the quantity produced.
