My second time doing this cheese and wine tasting/ pairing and cannot give it enough praise. Your tastebuds wont know what has hit them, and your brain will be impressed with all the Frenchness of cheese. Highly recommend, and go for the extra tasting--it is well worth the extra

What a delightful and informative time, learning so many specifics about various cheeses, differences in rinds, soft vs hard cheeses, aging, and more. The aging room was very cold but hopefully reversed our aging ;) The wine tasting was equally enjoyable, especially built upon

Hello @Croissantman ! Thank you for taking the time to write a few words. We are very glad you enjoyed the cheeses and pairings. Also sorry you were sad not to be able to go and seat down at the cellar :) We were running out of staff that day and could not take every one at the cellar. :( :( Our cheese tasting and cheese making workshops are held in a professionnal environment, and is dedicated to professionnals. This makes the experience very authentic and not touristy for you, which we think is great. In the meantime we can need flexibility sometimes (99% of workshop are held at the cellar) but we take the point and you will be welcome anytime so we can show you the cellar ! Best
