If you’re looking for something a bit more portable (and edible!), look no further than a gourmet wine and cheese basket from specialty food retailer Harry & David. We spoke with the Harry & David Team, and they explained that, “For decades, Harry & David has represented exceptional quality in gifting, and recipients know they are receiving something special with these expertly crafted gift baskets and towers. Every item in this Gourmet Cheese Gift with Wine is carefully selected to complement the others perfectly, from specialty cheeses to delectable dried fruit and private-label Harry & David™ wine.” Each gift basket is “packaged in a sturdy wooden crate” and “specifically designed for the [wine and] cheese aficionado.
We’ve assembled four superior cheeses with a bottle of Harry & David 2014 Pinot Gris and dried fruit and mixed nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts, and pecans) to create a pleasant and inviting gourmet snack spread.” The cheeses included in each basket are SeaHive (cheddar) from Beehive Cheese Company, Sartori’s BellaVitano Gold (Italian-inspired), gouda, and Rogue Creamery’s TouVelle cheese (full and creamy). Reasonably priced at $79.99, the original Gourmet Cheese Basket with Wine is an excellent choice for any wine and cheese lover. A Brunch Gift Basket with Wine ($84.99) and Northwest Gift Basket with Wine ($99.99) are also available. To order, head over to www.harryanddavid.com/h/gift-baskets-tower-boxes/gifts-with-wine/28283.
