Created in Piave, a region in Veneto, where farmers originally used to preserve their cheese by immersing it in wine must. The maker of Ubriaco, which means drunk in Italian, bathes the cheese for fourty hours in a mix of wine must made up of Cabernet, Merlot, Clinton, and Raboso grapes. Ubriaco has a sweet flavor, with hints of wine and a fruity flavor.
