Just pop it in the refrigerator when it arrives and let it be for a bit. We make our cheese the way they made it long ago, before refrigeration, so it lasts A LONG time out of it. The weather is great right now for this!



This sounds delicious and I'm ready to go in for one, but, instead of it being shipped ground, can I get, like, just two big pieces?

I recently had the Serena and personally wasn't a fan. The cheese was a bit too dry and bitter for me.

The moment I noticed wine.woot was selling artisan cheese, I knew I was in trouble. I resisted for about 24 hours, but then had to click the big gold button.

I love Parmesean, and always have a place for cheese that share some of its characteristics. My friends and I get together for wine/cheese/crackers a lot, and it will be a great to have a couple of good new cheeses to try.

Everything in life is better with good cheese :-)

Stopped by 'our' cheese shop on the way through Spokane. The cheapest one out of the four we purchased was $28 a pound. So $15 a pound for decent cheese is nothing...

I'll be completely honest in that I didn't like the cheese at first bite. It was a bit tart for me. But after awhile the cheese really grew on me, especially with crackers. Like HAK above I can't really describe cheese but I remember thinking that it tasted a bit like Parmesan. I thought I was crazy for thinking that. Then I read the description a few minutes ago and there it was..."a hard cheese with some of the bite of Parmesan and some of the sweet nuttiness of Gruyere". What I thought of as tart was that bite they described. And the sweet nuttiness was definitely in the hizzy. $30 for 2 lbs of cheese is more than I'm comfortable spending plus way more than I can eat by myself, but this was pretty tasty.

TByrd & Sparky, I'll bring some with me tomorrow if you guys want to try the cheese after dinner (or even before). I doubt the restaurant will let me bring it inside so it would have to be a parking lot tasting.



Anyway, back from the Brazilian BBQ with Java & TB. Went back to TB's for some vino and cheez.

Cheez was very, very, very good. Much like parmesan. Yummy. Glad I got some.

Lurk Lurk Lurk. It figures my first post would be on a cheese purchase rather than wine, but...

In for one. I was debating with myself since this offer was posted and finally convinced myself (after I thought about the regret I would feel not purchasing it, much like the blue last year) that $30 for 2 pounds of unique cheese is absolutely worth it. Now it is time to go back and re-balance my end of month finances to make room for it...

Oh, and Hi.

Hm... I wonder. Since this is cheese... and not wine, does the 21 age-limit apply to this woot as well? I may not be able to drink legally yet, but I sure do enjoy some cheese.

We should've pulled out the balsamic for this. My god. This stuff and the balsamic vinegar from woot a little while ago - holy good. The balsamic adds the touch of moisture and sweetness to it that really makes the cheese shine.

Thought I had finished it off the other night, but I did actually have a small little bit left - enough to make me a yummy frittata and have a try with some balsamic. This stuff really behaves like parmesan, so if you like parmesan, you'll love this. If you don't... well, you probably won't like this either.

Frittata:
4-5 1/8" slices of Serena
3 eggs
1 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp salsa
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp dried chives
1 bell pepper (your pick of color!), diced
2 tsp oil (remember the infused oil? i used that)
pinch of salt

Heat a skillet over medium heat with the oil. When it thins out and spreads evenly (because it may not get to the smoke point), toss in the bell pepper and salt. When the bell pepper has begun to brown, drop in the salsa and stir.
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. When the liquid from the salsa has bubbled off, pour the eggs into the skillet and spread to coat. Arrange the cheese slices around the top, and sprinkle the seasoning and chives over it all. Cover and let cook for approx. 5 minutes, or until the eggs have set and are cooked all the way through, and the cheese has melted.

Serve up with a glass of Gewurztraminer, or a yummy Mimosa.

Are you all hungry now?

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

If thats the case, I will have to try snacking on it with some red grapes. Thats one of my fav fruit / cheese combos with Parmesan

Well then you should try Serena's little sister " Serenita", its a younger version of our Serena with a completely different flavor profile. Its fruity and tangy and very creamy! I think you'd like it!

Illinois just got a little brighter - in for three by coercing others to join me, cuts the price down to $13.33 per pound. I hope we have some of the Woot Cellars Sangi left when this arrives.

"Unfortunately" WD only sent us the serena for our tasting. Unlike NoVA who got both CLEARLY we know who the favorite children are around here

Not that I'm complaining since I got in on THAT action too... and am ALWAYS GRATEFUL for the samples that get sent our way for the tastings!

Like a poster above, my first wine.woot isn't wine either! I've been lurking for a while and have been tempted (by the oils and the brandini) but finally gave in for the cheese!
Having been lurking and reading up on the wines, I think I'm going to have to start going to some local wine education class before I actually take that plunge!
Now for my real question, how do you get the birthday coupon? I just had a birthday, but didn't get anything and looked in my account area for where it needs to be put and couldn't find any where to put it!
I also couldn't find the Wines of Spain that has the specifics on the cherry spread...any help there?
Thanks! I'm sure I'll keep on lurking!

I read all that, sent the email, got a code back from the guys at wine country connect, but it didnt work. Theyre supposed to be getting back to me soon about it. I hope they do soon, as I plan on getting 2 of these now, but would hate to miss out on the lil perk they offer.
