This stone building, having withstood a fire and numerous earthquakes, was originally constructed in 1904 to house a brewery
During "Prohibition", in 1931, Gaetano "Tom" Vella and his wife, Zolita, Clerici Vella converted the building's use to the making of cheese.
Still under the Vella family ownership, not much has changed since 1931, the cultures, the care, and the personal hands-on-techniques, are still a part of their making quality cheese. Award-winning cheeses have been produced here since 1969.
