Entering into Virginie’s cheese shop is an unforgetable tasting experience for your eyes and palate.
This young cheese-merchant, friendly and passionate, proudly continues the tradition of « Fromager-Affineur » in the family, for the third generation. (knowledge of how to bring each cheese to full maturity in terms of its specific nature and character and have them discovered when they taste like at the peak of their maturation).
Set up since 1995 in a genuine Montmartre cheese shop of the early 1900’s, Virginie offers more than a hundred varieties of cheeses. All the cheeses that she sells are made exclusively from raw milk. She constantly crisscrosses the countryside and works ceaselessly to increase the number of farmstead cheeses – cheese made according to traditional methods.
She is committed to the idea of respecting nature and the seasons, because all cheeses are not the same at all times of the year, and some are not produced during certain seasons. Depending on the season, she knows how to choose and select the finest cheeses that she brings to maturity with skills and passion in her cellars.
