The origins of the Bresaola are very ancient and date back to the time when the alpine populations of the Valtellina and their neighbors from the Swiss region of the Grisons – at the other side of the Bernina mountain range – started looking for a way to preserve the meat all year round.

Together, they developed the traditional system of storing the meat through rubbing, salting and air-drying processes.

The special surroundings of the region, with low temperatures throughout the year and its dry air, made possible to use less salt, therefore obtaining a tender beef with a delicate flavor and aroma
