Vacherin Mont d’Or is a soft, rich, seasonal cheese made from cow's milk in villages of the Jura region. It is a washed rind cheese produced between August 15 and March 15, and sold between September 10 and May 10. It is traditionally made in the winter months when the cows come down from Alpage (mountain pastures) and there is not enough milk to make Comté. It is sold in round boxes made of spruce. The strips of spruce are harvested by specialists called "sanglier". It is often served warmed in its original packaging and eaten like fondue.
