Got a delicious selection of 5 cheeses, two big chunks of each accompanied by various mustards and chutneys. Our guide was very informative and very friendly - she was able to host the tasting in both french and English. We got two drinks also (wine, beer or soft) A great experience and the bonus was a discount of any cheese you buy

Wonderful setting upstairs at the store. Our host was very attentive and gave a great presentation about the history of Henri Willig. Answered all our questions and was very knowledgeable. The cheese tasting platter was huge and had a great variety to taste along with dipping sauces. Great combo with the wine and port that was offered. A nice experience to have with others from different countries - 2 Americans, 2 Australians and 2 Belgians.
