About us

Zuanon Cellar is the result of more than thirty years experience in the world of Prosciutto (dry-cured ham). It is also the personal goal of the "master of ham" Leone Zuanon ? his passion and his desire of refinement have led him to reach and satisfy top quality specialists.

His task is to choose excellent prosciutti, strictly selecting them among the best producers of San Daniele.

Next, those prosciutti are brought in his cellar for refining which takes from six to eight months. Leone Zuanon personally checks temperature and humidity and he lets gentle breezes in, so that nature can work without any haste.

The final product is well-balanced, its weight guarantees the thigh was coming from a heavy pig, the spiking ("spiking" or "piercing" is the classic method to assess quality) is sweet and the aesthetics is looked after according to tradition - the outcome is a high quality unique prosciutto.

The added value of this product is its refining in Zuanon cellar. Maturation with natural ventilation and traditional techniques make prosciutti that are appreciated by more and more people, far from industrial mass consumer goods.
