Where you'll be

A warm welcome awaits you at our cheese laden table along with drinks to refresh the palate. Once settled in, we set off on an edible journey around the Auvergne, tasting AOP cheeses and discovering lesser know artisanal gems. A unique opportunity to taste how different processes , age, location and the cheese-maker's individuality effect the cheese's flavour. Sit at ease in good company and let your tastebuds do the traveling.
