Cheese Ball Recipe with Local Windy Winery Wine

November 10th, 2010 by Pamela Murski

Whip up this  delicious easy cheese ball using Chardonnay from Windy Winery, a local winery located just a short drive from the B&B!  This is a recipe from the vintners!  We use their wines in many of our classes and foodie events.  Their winery is a “must stop” place when staying at the ranch with us.   This lovely cheese ball would be great for the holidays, parties, for gift giving or just for a late afternoon relaxing with a glass of Windy Hill wine on the porch!   Let me know how you like it and how you use it!

Gorgonzola / Chardonnay Wine Cheese Ball

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
1/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons Windy Winery Chardonnay wine
2 tablespoons paprika
1/2 cup chopped pecans

In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, Gorgonzola cheese, sharp Cheddar cheese and Chardonnay. Form the mixture into a ball shape.  On a piece of wax paper, spread the paprika and pecans. Roll the  cheese ball in paprika and pecans to coat.  Wrap coated cheese ball in wax paper. Chill in the refrigerator 6 hours, or overnight, before serving.
