See some of our picks of top cheese for your cheese board and wine picks for this holiday season!
COLSTON BASSETT STILTON
Known as the “king of English cheeses”, this blue is a creamy, pungent cheese that is neither sharp nor overpowering. Handmade in Nottinghamshire, it's one of the last remaining hand ladled Stiltons. Serve with some Marcona almonds and taste of tawny port!
This buttery, rich triple-cream cheese from France is simply amazing with some fresh fruit or smeared on a DLM Artisan Baguette with a flute of Champagne, of course.
A classic French cheese from the mountains of eastern France, Comté melts in your mouth leaving you with flavors that range from dense and smoky to sweet and fruity. Pair with sliced apples or melt on a grilled cheese with DLM Farmhouse Bread.
Truly special, this Spanish cheese has a slight caramel and nutty flavor that lends itself well to layering on an apple slice with a dollop of quince jam, and serving with sparkling wine.
These are the best to pair with cheese and charcuterie! All natural with the perfect crunch that lets the cheese shine.
These wine and Champagne picks will help make spirits bright for the holidays. From European big reds to something sparkling, you'll be set this holiday season.
