Fresh Robiola 100g
Robiola is an Italian style of cheese that materializes around the Piedmont region in many forms, many times lightly ripened and made from different proportions of goat, sheep or cow's milk. This is the most elemental version: pure cow's milk in its softest, most spreadable form. Shaped into cubes that range from the white of fresh snow to a bloomy pale rose color, these fresh blocks should be cut into to enjoy the creamy interior. Italy's version of cream cheese, Robiola's sweet cream flavors make it an ideal partner to fruity strawberry preserves.

Just the Facts
Chenin BlancCrisp and acidic with light minerality. You may smell stone fruit, apples, pear, quince, even some fresh herbs.
Pair with: Tangy Loire Valley goat cheese to bring out crisp, mineral qualities in both. Something like Selles-sur-Cher will work perfectly!
CiderBrie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.
English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
Pair with: Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.
Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.
Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.
Sparkling WineChampagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!
Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.
