Bolzano Artisan MeatsBolzano Artisan Meats is the first company in Wisconsin to bring back the lost art of dry curing, and one of the only in the nation to make products from locally raised heirloom hogs.

We take our inspiration from the midwest's makers of great artisan cheeses and craft beers — to bring back time-honored foods made with old world craftsmanship.

And like these food heroes of ours, we take pride in being small. Think start-up-microbrewery instead of food factory. We love it that other meat companies produce more in a week than we do in a whole year. Read more


Charcuterie School

Our Charcuterie School On-The-Go is a tasting event that takes place at various local establishments... guiding your minds and tastebuds as we sample our way through flights of paired salamis, beers, wine and cheeses. Be prepared to eat, learn, and really geek out with us on what makes Wisconsin's first dry-cured meats company tick, what the heck dry-curing is, and why it's great for heirloom breeds and small farms. Special Charcuterie School only deals will be offered, and of course we'll have all of our usual products for sale, too. Maps! Charts! Food! Fun!

Bolzano Handcrafted Salamis

We start with heirloom pork, raised the right way without hormones or antibiotics, and every link is handmade by us, right here in Milwaukee. The long curing and drying time means our products loose about 30% of their original weight, resulting in very dense, complex, yet delicate flavors.

Our salamis are actually fermented - the traditional way - so they have all the complexities of beer and wine, and other great intense foods. Buy locally or purchase online right here!
