Visitors to our shops love the magnificent Gorgonzola Dolce wheels, made by Carozzi in Valassina, Lombardy in Italy. Weighing around 10 kg each, our Gorgonzola Dolce is so soft and silky that we simply scoop it out of its rind shell. Its pale ivory paste is sublimely sweet and creamy while its blue veins deliver rich, salty flavours with mushroom notes. One of our mildest blue cheeses, it is aged for between two and three months.

Country of Origin
Our wine expert, Katie Goodchild from Heritage Wines recommends Hattingley Valley Entice -
“Blue cheese and dessert wine is always a fantastic match. The saltiness you get from blue cheese is crying out for a sweeter wine. Gorgonzola Dolce is a milder style of blue cheese. Itself sweet and creamy but still with that noticeable tang coming from its blue veins. An ideal pairing then for a dessert wine from England. England’s wines have become known for their high acidity and this is no different when it comes to dessert wines. In comparison to Sauternes, Takaji and Germany’s Eiswein, English dessert wines are less cloying and more refreshing; a result of that natural high acidity.
Hattingley Valley Entice is my wine of choice with Gorgonzola Dolce. This milder style of blue works fantastically well with this refreshing English sweet wine, neither overpowering one another. Add a sliced peach and you have a delicious summer’s day lunch. If dessert wine isn’t for you, pair Prosecco with Gorgonzola Dolce."
Just so very nice, scoopable too
I've been using Slate since lockdown started in March, and have been impressed with their choice of cheese, ease of delivery (especially in time for Christmas) and the quality! Brilliant!
The gorgonzola is probably the creamiest and ripest I've ever had in the UK!
I gave my sister some Italian cheeses from Slatecheese for her 50th birthday last week. Having spent many summer holidays with our grandparents in Elba, Italy it was a trip down memory lane for her. And the cheeses were outstanding. Gorgonzola and Taleggio - ripe and ready to eat, well made...just perfect.
