Description :

About this tour: If you've ever wondered why there are more than 500 different cheeses in France, how different cheeses are produced (what accounts for their texture, color, and smell?), why French cheesemakers use raw unpasteurized milk in their cheese, what the impact of seasonality and aging are on cheese, and how locals typically enjoy cheese in restaurants and at home... this tour is for you. We'll cover all this plus plenty of other cheese geekery while tasting our way through a wide variety of cheeses from a renowned fromagerie, all accompanied by great bread and wine.


Price for a small group tour: 95€ per person, including all tastings. More on private tour options here.
