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!
