    I got this cream cheese dip idea from my recent visit to taste the new Fleming’s Steakhouse and Wine Bar menu. Wine and Cheese Spread has a unique flavor combination that can only be described as dry and cheesy.

    Dry like drinking a dry red wine, full bodied and tannic. The original used blue cheese, but the taste and smell is too much for so many people that I changed my version to use feta cheese. You can still revert back to the blue, if you choose.

    To cut the acidity, I added pureed caramelized onions and honey. Rosemary adds an earthy undertone and whipped cream cheese is the base.  Any type of dry red wine can be used to make this spread.

    It is not cooked, so it does contain alcohol. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, use dry red cooking wine.

    I recommend pairing Wine and Cheese Spread with a sweeter red wine, grapes and Rosemary Focaccia Bread.

    What to serve with wine? Well depending on the type of wine you are drinking you can serve wine with shrimp, cheese, olives, fruits and fresh baked breads. Check out my Wine Pairing 101 to learn how to pair your wines and a few party tricks that will have folks thinking you are a true wino.
