During this cheese and wine tasting tour, you taste several different varieties of freshly cut French and Swiss cheeses. Alternate bites of Camembert, L'Etivaz, and Beaufort with sips of delicate French wines paired to complement the cheeses. Fruit and fresh baguettes enhance your tasting experience.

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
