Cheese for Toasting

Waitrose is the first UK supermarket to launch a Prosecco cheese. Arriving in shops last month, this indulgent cheese is perfect for adding a sparkly twist to any cheeseboard.

The Ubriaco Prosecco DOC, affectionately referred to as ‘drunken cheese’, is a traditional Italian cows’ milk cheese which is bathed in Treviso Prosecco DOC for 40 to 50 days during its ageing process, which takes 6 – 8 months in total. The cheese has a soft, supple texture. Its flavour is reminiscent of flowers, pears and golden apples, with a hint of saltiness in the background. Available from Waitrose cheese counters and is priced at (£25/kg).
