At Maison Moga, you will find both the most famous and the most appreciated cheeses such as a Fourme d’Ambert AOP (blue-veined paste from Auvergne) or a Camembert de Normandie AOP (soft paste with flowery rind); rare cheeses that are more difficult to find and seasonal cheeses such as the Charles Arnaud 36-month-ripened Comté PDO; also more classical cheeses are available all-year round to meet your needs as closely as possible. Whether you are looking for butter, crème fraîche or a farmhouse Saint-Nectaire AOP (uncooked pressed cheese made from cow’s milk), our cheese and dairy shop in l’Isle-sur-la -Sorgue is a real cheese cellar for novice and experienced amateurs! Treat yourself with the smoothness of a goat cheese or a Chaource, the powerful taste of a Roquefort PDO or a Picodon, the fragrant flavor of a lemon perfumed Satonnay, the fondant of a Pouligny- Saint-Pierre AOP or the fruity taste of a Rondin’ Sheep from Aveyron. Set off for the wild lands of the Isle of Beauty (Corsica) while tasting the emblematic Brocciu AOP, traditional Corsican cheese and a Bastelicacciu, another Corsican specialty made from raw sheep’s milk with a strong aromatic richness. And when the thermometer’s temperatures are at their lowest, what could be better than melted cheese! One of the star recipes for winter evenings is the baked Mont d’Or, very easy to prepare and delicious with potatoes and cold meats. The other must-have recipe is of course raclette! At Maison Moga, you will find everything you need for a tasty raclette party: mix of cheeses to melt, including of course the traditional raclette, but also Morbier (raw cow’s milk) or Braizou (sheep’s milk)! Finally, what would a warm winter evening with friends be without a homemade tartiflette and a delicious farmer Reblochon that makes it up?

We give an important place to raw milk cheese (cow’s milk, goat’s milk and sheep’s milk) for its authentic taste and nutritional qualities. We also offer cheeses made from pasteurized milk to also satisfy those who would be more sensitive to raw milk like pregnant women. Discover a brittle 48-month-old Gouda, a spicy Provolone (16 months maturing) or a cream cheese with herbs.
