    The cheese workshop is run by Marc, who took on the reins of the Verbier dairy from his father. Thanks to Marc’s expertise and passion for his work, you’ll have no trouble at all stepping into the shoes of an apprentice cheesemaker. Each workstation has its own cooking pot, which you will use to make your own Bagnes tomme (one cheese per workstation). You’ll follow the production process from A to Z, benefiting from Marc’s explanations at each step along the way. While the cheese is draining in the colander, you’ll get the chance to try some of the dairy’s other products, including vieux bagnes, tomme and other house specialities. At the end of the workshop, you can take home the tomme you made with your own hands or leave it to mature at the dairy.
