Explore the over 800-year history of the Tête de Moine AOP as you discover a whole new world here at the Tête de Moine AOP cheese dairies. Our interactive exhibits will awaken your senses to the mysteries of this unique speciality and give you an insight into our production and tradition. The smelling samples will remind you of the typical fragrances of our mountains and you’ll learn about the secrets of the Tête de Moine through picture and sound. A magic Girolle and a drawing workshop provide for some extra variety. At the «Maison de la Tête de Moine AOP, fromage de Bellelay» and at the abbey you’ll learn more about our over 800 years of fascinating history. Of particular interest to our visitors is the actual production of our cheeses (historical and on request in Bellelay) and, of course, the cheese tasting itself.
