The first 12 days of December, Ponte will be featuring special bundled collections of wine and Marketplace goods that have been carefully selected to create truly delicious and unique gifts for those who are high on your “nice” list. But that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t be a wonderful gift for you as well.
A Gouda Time
…my true love gave to me, the cheesiest gift I’ve ever received! A Gouda Time comes with everything you need to pair wine with its best friend: cheese. It takes the snobbery out of wine and cheese pairing and gives you the information and tools to learn how fun and delicious this pastime is. In this bundle you will receive one Fruitwood Cutting Board, “The Cheese Course” book, one Cheese Tasting Kit, one Cheese Slicer/Server and one 2010 Ponte Chardonnay.
Each Fruitwood Cutting Board is unique and created from richly grained fruitwood. The soft sheen of each board makes cheeses stand out and appear deliciously appetizing. “The Cheese Course” contains more than 40 recipes for sweet and savory cheese pairings along with suggestions for beautiful presentations. In the Cheese Tasting Kit, you will receive 50 cheese profile cards, 50 cheese identification cards and information about buying, storing and pairing your cheeses. With the Cheese Slicer/Server, you can kiss your days of serving cheese with a butter knife goodbye. This attractive ebony-handled stainless steel blade slices uniform cuts of cheeses with ease. You couldn’t have a wine and cheese party without the wine, so allow us to help you out with that: a bottle of 2010 Ponte Chardonnay will get you started. Flavors of red apple and melon marry with butter and vanilla characteristics to make a wine that is lovely with richer cheeses like brie and camembert. Although A Gouda Time makes a wonderful gift, we suggest also picking one up for yourself and wowing your friends and family with your newly found wine and cheese pairing skills at your holiday party!
