Discover the mysterious Roquefort Société Caves…
In the heart of the Occitania region, the Aveyron department boasts a number of exceptional sites. Among them, the Roquefort Société Caves are far from the least impressive: omnipresent nature formed a natural casket underground that, thanks to the joint efforts of Human Hands and Nature, gave birth to the Roquefort Société Caves. Today the ripening of Société Roquefort AOP still takes place in these caves surrounded by their unique architecture.
Each year the Société Caves welcome more than 100 000 visitors without interrupting production. You can come and visit the Société Caves at any time of year – an amazing yet true life experience!
The stages of the Tour
3D immersion room
Watch a 3D projection to find out how the Société® caves were formed.
As you walk past these fissures known as "fleurines" (“flarina” in Occitan, meaning "blow") you will feel the air they naturally exhale, which ventilates the caves. The Fleurines are small tunnels that link the cave to the mountainside.
The production of Roquefort
Enjoy a walk along the Causses paths and see the Lacaune sheep that make the sheep. A film takes you through all the production stages of Roquefort AOP Société®, from milking to the processing of the milk into cheese.
The Reynes Cave
Enjoy the illuminations in the oldest Roquefort cave.
The Penicillium Roqueforti mold flourishes spontaneously in the Roquefort caves and gives the cheese its characteristic blue-green marbled apearance and flavor. At Société® we carefully select and cultivate our own strains of Penicilium Roqueforti.
The Société Caves
Enter the heart of the Société Caves where, in contact with stone and wood, the metamorphosis of Roquefort AOP wheels takes place. The ripening of the cheeses is under the watchful and skilful eye of the Société® Master Affineur (cheese ripener).
The tasting room
Last and not least, the tour concludes with an opportunity to taste and appreciate our three Roquefort AOP Société® cheeses.
The exhibition room
Discover the 150 year-long history of Société® through the brand's advertising.
