Welcome to the discovery of our Baita

A Baita that offers to the visitor the best among the local food production, a full service restaurant with fresh products and selected from local businesses, and an important point for tourism information: with books and local newspapers; a meeting point between the saperi e sapori Brembani (knowledge and tastes from Valle Brembana), an area rich of history, culture and traditions.

The shop

From the Royal Cheeses of the Orobian Mountains (Agrì Valtorta Slow Food Presidium, Bitto Storico Slow Food Presidium, FTB Branzi, Formai de Mut from the Alta Val Brembana DOP, Formaggi di capra orobica, Stracchino all’antica delle Valli Orobiche Slow Food Presidium, Strachìtunt DOP) dairy excellence of our territory, to the gorgonzola goat aged in rose petals and berries, passing through all the delicious products of the dairy Branzi (butter, puddings, panna cotta, yogurt, botticello...).
Here you’ll find a meeting point between the summer productions of the hard work in the mountain pastures, including the Mascherpa d’Alpe and the Formai de Mut, and the fresh products of tradition.
We can not miss the products of small and medium-sized local farms: sausage, jams, honey, sauces, polenta flour, bread sticks, mushrooms.
We give particular attention to the choice of the winery: craft beers, bitters, grappa and a precise selection of wine labels justified primarily by the company's history as well as the quality of the product.

Le casere in cucina

You have to remind too that the Baita dei saperi e dei sapori Brembani becomes also a cooking workshop through to make tourists and inhabitants of the valley or Bergamo curious discover or rediscover the flavours of the region with dishes prepared in a modern way.
We prepare tasting combinations designed to enhance the taste of the product and to enhance the experience and the effort of those who work in our mountains.

Our philosophy

Good, beautiful, true

We alternate the meals with the seasons and the availability of our farmers to always give you the best quality.
Our products come from ethical mountain agriculture.
The milk is milked from 70 farms in these valleys.

We breed the original “Bruna alpina” and “Capra (oat) orobica”, pigs, Pecora (sheep) bergamasca and donkeys; all are bred in the wild and in respect of animals.
We have a vegetable garden in the mountains where we grow soft fruits, the vegetables and the flowers that you’ll find on our meals.
Waste is our enemy, because to waste the food is a shame.
