Maison Moga: your cheese shop in l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

Cheese shop from Maison Moga

Cheese from Provence represent the heart of the Maison Moga cheese shop

Maison Moga constantly honors the breeders and artisanal cheesemakers from Provence. Local cheeses say a lot about the identity of a region and the Provence Alpes Côte d´Azur region has plenty to tell us about these breeders who produce fantastic local artisanal cheeses! It was only natural that Alexandre Moga, a lover of the South of France, chose Provençal cheeses that would be at the heart of l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue cheese shop. Each cheese producer is particularly selected for its commitment to respecting the terroir and the quality of its cheese and animals. The variety of pastures, the preservation of the raw milk cheese production, the traditional know-how; all these factors that make the characteristics of a regional cheese with unique flavors are taken into consideration to be placed in the display window of the cheese shop in l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

Once you enter Maison Moga, the whole Provence opens up to you thanks to our beautiful cheese and dairy selection of goat and sheep cheeses, fresh and dry options from the local farms, such as Pernes-les-Fontaines, pieces with ashes or crottins; fresh goat cheese from Ventoux flavored with honey, pepper, local herbs… Have you heard of Rove des Pallières, a goat’s cheese full of sweetness handcrafted in Gigondas in a domain attached to the Dentelles de Montmirail.

You will also find in our cheese and dairy shop in l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Protected Designations of Origin (PDO) from Provence such as the delicious and famous Banon!

An ancestral goat cheese matured in chestnut leaves, all bound by a rustic strand of raffia (cord). The herds of goats feed in the hills of Haute-Provence which give a specific taste to their milk: both sweet and strong with aromas of woods.

Another Provençal PDO promises to delight your taste buds at Maison Moga: Brousse de Rove.

La Rove, a goat with long twisted horns, feeds on rosemary and oak among other things, this gives its milk distinct aromas. The resulting Brousse is produced in the West of the Var, in the South of the Vaucluse and in the Bouches-du-Rhône! With its very smooth paste and without salt, it is traditionally eaten with sweetness such as jam but it also combines perfectly as a salty option with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

Our cheese and dairy shop in l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue will quickly become a stopover for you and will be worth all the (short) trips from Avignon, Cavaillon, Carpentras or Gordes! Because Maison Moga is much more than a high-end cheese and dairy shop. It is truly an extraordinary customer experience that we want to share with you. On site or to take away, you can enjoy cheese platters that you have selected with gourmet family and friends, paired with equally tasty meats in mixed platters, but also with wines from our exceptional cellar, whether it’s a lunch, a picnic in the Provençal countryside or a cocktail.

Farmhouse cheeses from neighbor areas to our cheese and dairy shop in l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue represent a set of human stories, committed producers that Alexandre Moga met and whose farm products are now offered on our shelves at the Moga House. In the heart of Vaucluse (84) and at the gates of Luberon, Maison Moga is something unique not to be missed for all Provence gastronomical lovers, but also for those who adhere to local products consumption and their short-circuit distribution.
