Salumi in Italy

Hi my wife and I are going to Italy this summer and we both enjoy Salumi a whole lot. We are already planning a wine tour or two, and it got me thinking, are there similar Salumi tours or places where it its produced that you can visit? I love to go to such a place and see how they make it, see the pigs and have a tasting. If anyone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I did some googling and I couldn't find anything.

  1. There's this:
    But it doesn't say anything about seeing the pigs and may require booking by a group rather than individuals.

      1. Where are you going in Italy? It is a very large country, with pigs (almost) everywhere. How do you feel about wild pigs?

        1. This site is in Italian, but very useful--search by region for listings of producers of salumi (and/or formaggi, etc), some of which are also agriturismi. Contacts and websites are listed, and those that are agriturisimi as opposed to strictly commercial producers should be open to showing you round.

          1. Thanks for the suggestions. Appreciated!
