Drunken cheeses were inspired by the custom, born centuries ago, of hiding cheese in fermenting grape marc to conceal it from plunderers during wars or from the land owner during the official tally of goods at the end of the year with the farmers.
Moreover, in some ancient manuscripts written by Giovanni Barpo, a clerk from Belluno town (north of Italy), there already are references to cheese treated with grape marc on the surface in order to obtain a better preservation of the whole wheel. Grape marc coming from red wine in fact is rich in tannin, a natural preservative.
Today, with the current production process, the cheese wheel is steeped in grape marc for 10-15 days, then it is dried and after a brief maturation period in vacuum-packing it is ready for tasting.
