Vacherin Mont-d’Or cheeses have a unique feature: very runny, particularly when they are ripe, they are wrapped in a piece of spruce bark from the moment they are made until they are eaten. Skilfully made by hand from fir trees of the Jura region, the delicate essences of the wood wrappings merge with the flavours of the cheese. The result is an incomparable taste.

Milk Vacherin Mont-d'Or meets the specific requirements to qualify for the AOP quality mark. The smoothness of the cheese originates from the milk of cows fed on herbs and flowers of the Vaud Jura mountains. Produced exclusively between August and March with thermized milk, the vacherin Mont-d’Or, once it is ready, bursts out into original and incomparable aromas and textures.

The last phase of ripening takes place in the cellars where there are currently fewer than fifteen "affineurs" who perpetuate this tradition to indulge our taste buds.
