A cheese snack we all love, Port Wine Cheese Spread by Di Bruno Bros. juxtaposes the caramel and dark fruit tones of ruby port with the sharp, savory notes of aged cheddar. With the scoop-able consistency, this Di Bruno Bros. Signature Cheese is sure to be rolled up, stuffed into, and spooned about.
Port is a pretty tried-and-true cheese pairing, bringing a range of sweet, fruity, and toasty notes that bring out the best of a diverse array of cheese. The addition of wine to cheese, be it to promote a washed-rind ripening, provide flavor (unintended or not) from the outside-in, or to ripple through the paste, is an age-old practice.
Dark, nutty beers and a big bowl of pretzels beckon a tub of Port Wine Spread, as do thick slabs of pumpernickel bread and a hearty grain mustard. No festivity is complete without the childhood induction into cheese: the cheeseball. Scoop out the contents of this little tub and roll it about it a pan of chopped pecans or slivered almonds. You know this is what you really wanted the whole time.
