Learn secrets from a master

Cheese and wine are two of the best reasons to visit France, and they come together in this exceptional Masterclass that will give you in-depth knowledge of what can be mysterious worlds.

We are honored to welcome international fromager Thomas Métin as our resident wine and cheese expert! Thomas managed the cheese counter at Harrods in London, ran a cheese shop in New Zealand and worked for the likes of Androuët and Laurent Dubois in Paris before taking charge of cheese selection at Lafayette Gourmet in Paris and St-Laurent du Var, just outside Nice. He now runs his own cheese shop, Fromagerie Métin, in Vence.

Bilingual with an infectious enthusiasm for his subject, Thomas will take you on a voyage through the cheese regions of France, using perfectly-aged specimens to illustrate his points. He will also select the ideal wine to accompany each carefully chosen cheese.

Some wine and cheese tastings will focus on a specific family of cheeses, such as brie or comté, while others will include a selection from around France. As in all of Rosa’s classes, only the finest products from farmers who are passionate about their craft make the cut!
