Pearl of the Alpine Pastures

The maison de l’Etivaz stores in its cellars the famous cheese “Etivaz” known as the “Pearl of the Alpine Pastures.” Everyone will have the opportunity to taste this delicious cheese during their visit to the Maison de l’Etambeau.

L’Etivaz PDO

The Etivaz PDO is a hard cheese made in alpine pastures, crafted traditionally between May 10th and October 10th using unpasteurized milk. Over 3000 cows grazing in around 130 pastures located between 1000 and 2000 meters above sea level provide rich and flowery milk each day, which is exclusively heated over wood fires in copper cauldrons. The aging process awakens the rich and powerful aromas from the diverse bouquet of herbs that the cows have grazed on.
