The Formaggio Ubriaco cheese has its roots in the farming tradition of the Veneto region. It has taken its name from the fact that the local dairymen used grape dregs to wet the rind thus giving to the cheese the winey taste and aroma. Another story dates back to the First World War. At that time the farmers of the area tried to protect their cheeses from the enemy by hiding their cheeses in the wine must. Trying the cheese later they realized how good the cheese was and how well it kept
