Oftentimes, when people think of food for the Fall season, we think of the familiar warm spices like nutmeg and cinnamon; however, whenever I think of Fall, I imagine rich and earthy notes. What a perfect time to indulge in some of Bottle King Vineyard Market’s decadent truffle delights! Let me introduce you to just a few of my favorite showstoppers–all of which are currently available at our Bottle King in Glen Rock.
Fromager D’Affinois with Truffles
Definitely a winner within the Fromager D’Affinois line of cheese, this variety is sure to impress. A double-crème made like a triple-crème, this cheese is rich and buttery at first bite. With shavings of Black Summer Truffle within, the earthiness can be detected at first on the nose and then subtly with each taste; it’s just enough truffle to add some noticeably extra lusciousness.

Bel Gioioso Burrata with Black Truffle
Prepare to be amazed, ladies and gentlemen. An old friend to our Ramsey location and a new friend to us in Glen Rock, this cheese is one you won’t forget. Traditional Burrata (read about it HERE) is fresh Mozzarella wrapped around a creamy rich mixture of shredded Mozzarella and heavy cream, formed into a ball and stored in liquid. This version has the incredible addition of Black Summer Truffles, giving the already amazingly rich and creamy Burrata a smooth and perfectly mellow earthy twist.
A semi-firm English Cheddar marbled with pieces of Black Summer Truffle, Il Truffelino is your new secret weapon for when company arrives. With a smooth and creamy texture, this cheese has a decadent, medium-strength truffle flavor. When we first got this baby into the Vineyard Market, I was blown away; it tastes just like truffle butter in cheese form! Il Truffelino comes into stores in limited quantities and goes fast, so grab it while you can!
Moliterno al Tartufo
The ultimate truffle cheese: this guy is a truffle-lover’s delight. An Italian sheep’s milk cheese that is aged for a time before being injected with black truffle paste, then rubbed down with black truffle paste, and then aged again to infuse all the flavors, Moliterno al Tartufo is a blast of truffle flavor in every bite. Each piece we cut shows its gorgeous veins of Black Summer Truffle, making for a striking display on a cheese platter. (Read more on this cheese HERE)
These delectable delights come in when we can get our hands on them and disappear fast. Be sure to call your local Bottle King Vineyard Market for stock these four unforgettable cheeses!
