What is better than a bottle of wine as a gift? A bottle of wine in a basket filled with tasty treats that are carefully selected to enhance the wine. Hence the popularity of the wine gift basket. Some may consider the gift of wine as a fashionable and trendy way to show you care, while others may see it as a more traditional type of gift.
So this brings us to the ageless and time honored tradition of pairing wine with cheese. The reason people like to drink wine and eat cheese together is that the cheese enhances the flavor of the wine, and the wine in turn enhances the taste of the cheese. There are wine and cheese connoisseurs with an experienced palate and extensive knowledge of the many different brands and types of cheese and wine available, and what tastes the best with each other. This is the type of person who put the wine and cheese gift basket together that we are offering.
Our wine basket featuring a bottle of Woodbridge Chardonnay 2005. This is a fruity dry white wine that is made from Chardonnay grapes. The Woodbridge winery is located in the Lodi region, one of California's oldest wine making areas. The owner of this winery is Robert Mondavi, known for producing hand-crafted wines of a distinctive style. The people at Woodbridge use gentle hands-on techniques in the vineyards and winery that result in smooth, great tasting wines.
"This Chardonnay is a perfect balance between fresh citrus and apple notes interwoven with rich, ripe tropical fruit character. Hints of orange blossom and spice add interest to the enticing aromas, while the creamy, lingering finish is laced with warm oak tones." EveryWine.co.uk
The Woodbridge Winery’s Chardonnay 2005 in our wine gift basket is offered with a delicious assortment of gourmet cheeses, crackers, nuts and snacks. Includes chardonnay havarti flavored cheese spread, Spanish olive and pimento cheese spread, wheat and water crackers, garlic and black pepper dipping pretzels, cheese biscuits and more including Grilled Vegetable & Parmesan Savory Wine Biscuits.
