Once upon a time...
Since 1970, the Zambotti family has been carrying out breeding and milk production: after the grandparents Gianstefano and Agnese, today Rudi and his son Riccardo continue this important legacy with pride and determination. The desire to show a part of their daily life and the desire to bring good and genuine cheeses to your table are the basis of the construction of the mini-dairy, where it is possible to buy ″ less than zero km ″.Since 2009, the Fontanèl Agricultural Company has talked about itself through its products.

Password: goodness!
Located in Fiavé, a small gem set in the green of the outer Giudicarie Valleys, half way between the villages of Rango and Canale, Fontanèl is the ideal place for lovers of good food, nature lovers and animal friends. Let yourself be tempted by the authentic flavors, the result of the union of an ancient art with more modern instruments, and allow yourself a moment of relaxation in the mountains that surround you: so you will bring with you a piece of our history.

Matter of "prospects"
Inside the dairy shop it is easy to watch the milk being processed, through the window overlooking the laboratory. Here, the expert hands of the cheesemaker transform an excellent raw material into butter, ricotta, yogurt and cheese for all palates. Choose between different tasting proposals, which can be consumed inside the shop or outside, on the veranda from which you can enjoy a magnificent panorama.

Our products
We produce a dozen types of whole milk cheese, to enhance the organoleptic characteristics of our milk.The Crescenza and the Formaggella Piumata (cheese with a flowery rind) are made with pasteurized milk, while the Caciotta Fontanèl is made with raw milk. Blue Fiavè, our blue cheese, is highly sought after and won the 2015 Medusa Award from the Sapientia Mundi Academic Foundation of Rome. Then we produce two washed cheeses: Fontinèl, Fontina type, and Rettàngol, excellent to be cooked on the plate or in a pan. Our spearhead is the "Formai del Cadria", which represents the genuineness of our milk supply chain and contains all the hints of our hay. We then have a medium-sized cheese, Monte Misone, also available in a flavored version with nuts, herbs, pepper or chilli. Then there are ricotta and yogurt to satisfy the palates of children.
