The Creminelli family has been producing artisan meat products as far back as the 1600s according to family legend. In the early 1970s, Cristiano's father, Umberto Creminelli, took over the small family business, Salumificio di Vigliano, near the town of Biella at the foot of the Italian Alps in northern Italy. In 1990, Cristiano, who had grown up in his father's Salumificio, was put in charge of the production. By 1996, he was a managing all aspects of the company with supervision from his father and help from his brother.

In 2000, Cristiano had widened the family business and in 2006 the Salumificio was the first meat producer in the province to receive the prestigious Artisanal Excellence award, bestowed by the Piedmont Region and the Slow Food organization, which was started in the Piedmont Region. In 2006 Cristiano made the commitment to build Creminelli Fine Meats in America and began producing in June of 2007.

As far as ingredients and processes at Creminelli Fine Meats they follow the artisan traditions of the Creminelli family. Flavor and texture are their trusted guides when sourcing raw materials. Only all natural and organic ingredients are used as well as heritage meats that are humanely raised without antibiotics and with vegetarian feed. And whenever possible, they buy local.

Our Featured Creminelli Product
Picture of wild boar salami

Creminelli's salamis are handmade under the supervision of master artisan, Cristiano Creminelli himself. The Wild Boar Salami is made from a mixture of Texas wild boar and Duroc pork belly. Wild boar meat is leaner, it has a stronger and more distinctive flavor profile. The flavor of this salami is strongly related to the boar's wild diet which includes roots, grasses, nuts, and berries. Creminelli seasons the wild boar salami with wine-soaked cloves and juniper berries.

Cristiano insists on using choice cuts of meat from select breeds, fed with organic white grains and raised on small family farms. Organic spices are employed cautiously in the European tradition to complement and not overwhelm the flavorful, well-marbled natural pork.

This Wild Board Salami won a Sofi Award in the 2010 competition, in the category meat, pate or seafood.

Creminelli's wild boar salami pairs well with fresh figs, dates, walnuts, pistachios, rosemary bread, and Pecorino Toscano cheeses.
