Vacherin Mont D'Or

$54.00/Each


Produced over a single season each year, Vacherin Mont d'Or is as exclusive as it is silky and luscious. Hailing from Switzerland, it's crafted from cow’s milk produced during the fall and winter months—when the herd spends its days munching straw and fodder instead of grazing on the pasture. This specific diet imbues the cheese with a distinct richness, while a unique spruce wrapping brings irresistible woodsy notes to the spoonable interior. Since its availability is limited each year, make the most of every bite by enjoying it with an aromatic gewurztraminer. 

*Please note: Vacherin Mont D'Or's rind naturally has a mottled mix of white, blue, and green cheese molds on its orange-y pink surface. They’re part of the rind’s natural aging process and help soften the interior paste to its custard-like perfection. Don't be alarmed by this washed rind beauty's scent! Its funky essence is what makes this a special cheese experience.

Pour a glass of...
  • Chenin Blanc

    Crisp and acidic with light minerality. You may smell stone fruit, apples, pear, quince, even some fresh herbs.

    Pair with: Tangy Loire Valley goat cheese to bring out crisp, mineral qualities in both. Something like Selles-sur-Cher will work perfectly!


  • Sparkling Wine

    Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!

    Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.
