7 Caliere - Malga I Lotto Valmaron

Malga 7 Caliere,also known by the historical name of Malga I Lotto Valmaron,is located in the verdant resort of Valmaron (Enego),onthe Plateau of the Seven Municipalities.

Here, among wide pastures and green woods, the Dalla Palma family has been carrying on for generations the craft of malgari, dedicating themselves to the pasture, producing typical cheeses of the area, including Asiago Dop cheese, and also directly taking care of their seasoning.

In this uncontaminated environment, about 1400 m above sea level, you can breathe a pure air and it is really pleasant to spend a few hours in pure relaxation, being in contact with nature and enjoying the excellent products of the malga, lulled by the sweet sound of cowbells.

The hut is closing seasonally, it will reopen for the summer season 2022.

The Tombal shop (along the road from Enego to Valmaron) is open all year round on Friday afternoons (depending on the weather) and on Saturdays and Sundays

Eating in Malaga

As a restorative break during your walks in the surroundings, you can indulge in a hearty snack in the farmhouse with sandwiches or savoring the cold dish on the menu, prepared with a selection of the best cheeses and cured meats of the farm.
If you fancy something hot, instead, you can try the typical dish with tosella and cotechino,accompanied by the inevitable polenta,beans, hood and potatoes. And – why not – then finish the meal with a nice slice of one of the delicious homemade pastries.

Product sale and the award-winning asiango dop

Malga 7 Caliere also sells products directly: here you can buy butter, ricotta and yogurt from malga, but also caciotte, Burlino cheese, Marcesina cheese; and, of course, also the king of the cheeses of the Plateau, the Asiago Dop, which you will find on sale in the fresh, mezzano, old and extra-old types. 

The hut is also associated with the Asiago Cheese Protection Consortium and its Asiago won the first prize as a Product of the Italian Mountain 2016.

A family tradition

The long history of the farm began in the early 1900s,when grandfather Valerio Dalla Palma was in charge of the 7 Caliere,or the seven malghe that produced cheese in Valmaron-Marcesina with a single "caliera".

The witness then passed to his nephew Andrea,who together with his family passionately carried on the ancient craft of the Malagar,then passing on knowledge and secrets of the trade to his son Matteo,who today runs the Malga I Lotto Valmaron,continuing to produce cheeses of the highest quality.
