Maurizio and Cristiano Cortese are producing cheese since 2003 in Malga Verde, a mountain hut located on the Asiago Plateau, at an altitude of 1100 meters. The two brothers were able to transform successfully the small business once owned by their father. During the last 10 years they have earned numerous awaards. In June 2006, they joined the Consortium for the protection of Asiago cheese and have started to produce a particular selection of Asiago DOP, called 'Product of the mountain'
