La Maison du Gruyère is a village cheese dairy providing the opportunity of viewing the hand-made production of the cheese "Le Gruyère AOP" and much more…

Do you know the history, century-old expertise and the different production stages of a Gruyère AOP? The specifications, with their quality and traceability requirements? The ageing periods and the cellar treatment during its minimum 5 months of ripening?

The interactive display « Gruyère AOP, a journey to the heart of the senses » plays on the five senses to plunge visitors into the world of Gruyère AOP and reveal all its secrets.

Thanks to his dexterity and experience, the cheesemaker imparts to Gruyère AOP its particular character and individuality. Between 9:00 am and 00:30 pm, the high point is of course the opportunity of observing the expertise of the cheesemakers.

The visit, lasting some 30 to 45 minutes, takes place with headphones, and it’s in the company of the friendly cow « Cerise » that one explores the world of Gruyère AOP. The audio information is available in thirteen languages and written translations are also provided in eight languages.

The Restaurant of La Maison du Gruyère offers the opportunity of prolonging the experience in tasting numerous dishes with Gruyère AOP as well as typical local dishes.

Le Marché gruérien (Gruyère Market) features the products of our cheesemakers, local products, crafts and souvenirs.
