Petit Futé's opinion on THE HOUSE OF CHEESE

Vintage plate 2020

A must-see during your stay in Saint-Nectaire, the Maison du fromage is an essential visit to learn all about the famous cheese that has made the village famous. The guided tour, which lasts about 35 minutes, features a lovely film on a large screen, showing aerial images of the Auvergne countryside and the cows that supply the milk; it then continues in a cellar where the Saint-Nectaire cheese is matured and sold in the shop. Already renowned at the court of the Sun King, Saint-Nectaire has become a must-have on cheeseboards. Today, it is an appellation d'origine contrôlée. The guide is inexhaustible and passionate, and will give you all sorts of advice on how to store and enjoy the cheese you will take home. The visit ends with a tasting session where you will have to recognize a dairy Saint-Nectaire from a farm cheese. The shop area offers the best of local Auvergne production with PDO cheeses, traditional charcuterie, craft beers and of course jams cooked in a copper cauldron!

Bof
Vraiment pas terrible
Nous sortons de la visite, la visite de la cave se résume à un petit couloir avec des conditions d’affinage reconstituées ... la tout pour finir dans une boutique où le moindre gadget est vendu 3,90€ ...
Je ne conseille pas !

Visite intéressante Mais pas forcément incontournable car en effet, ça se limite à un film, un passage dans les caves, quelques infos supplémentaires et une dégustation.
Il est sans aucun doute possible de trouver des petits documentaires concernant la fabrication du Saint Nectaire sur YouTube et ce, gratuitement.

La maison du fromage n'est pas forcément un incontournable à Saint Nectaire, pour ce qui est de la visite du moins. Car à presque 6€, la visite se résume à une vidéo, un passage dans une cave d'affinage et une dégustation de deux Saint Nectaire, un peu léger pour le prix. Dans la boutique, on trouve des Saint Nectaire bien évidemment mais aussi quelques autres produits locaux.
