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!

Les Fleurines

Les fleurines

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

La fabrication du 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.

Penicillium

Le Penicilium

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.
